Can anyone help me out with the following issue I am having with secure folder.
I have enabled Download as Zip in the HTTP to enable multiple file downloads but I have found a error with this option. The error is that you can download any file\folder when this is enabled even if the folders are set up on GoAnyWhere not to be able to do this. For example I have a uploads folder configured to only allow users to upload to it , this works fine till I enable "Download as Zip" then the user is allowed to download any file or folder. Please can anyone help to stop this.

The download as zip option allows you to download any file/folder as a zip file... but, if you're not allowed (by permission) to download the file, it just creates an empty Zip File. So, the Permissions are adhered to and does not allow a file/folder to be downloaded, even if they get an empty zip.
