RM 2.0 Download limits

Have some questions:

1.- Is it possible to restrict total downloads per day?

2.- Have read that files are store at internal_data directory. Is it possible to change that folder with another one outside public area? If not, is there any protection for hotlinking? eg If someone knows the filename can he download it with direct link?

3.-Is it possible to upload files with FTP and then enter just the filename when posting a resource?

Happy Holidays to All

There isn't any built in limit like that.

2.- Have read that files are store at internal_data directory. Is it possible to change that folder with another one outside public area? If not, is there any protection for hotlinking? eg If someone knows the filename can he download it with direct link?
The internal_data directory is not accessible externally. There are rules in place (via .htaccess or similar web server rules) that block all access to the directory, though the files are also named with a non-guessable name.

The files are not served directly from there; they are served by PHP so the physical file name is not exposed.

(You can also change the path to the internal_data directory via config.php if you really want to.)

3.-Is it possible to upload files with FTP and then enter just the filename when posting a resource?
You can do this via the external download URL (provided the upload location is web accessible), though note that the external URL will be exposed in this case (as we just redirect to it). There isn't a way to serve the file like a normal, local download in this case.
