Simple File Manager is the right extension to use if you plan to publish sensitive files: it provides a secure storage and prevents access by anyone without the right permissions.

INSTALLATION IS SIMPLE: Use the Joomla installer with the single installation zip file. The component and all plugins are installed in a single step. Simple File Manager uses the Joomla "upgrade" capability and can be installed over previous versions of Simple File Manager.

There is only one supported version of Simple File Manager:

Simple File Manager version 5.1+ for Joomla 3.x
The 5.x versions will NOT work on Joomla 2.5
Version 4.x for Joomla 2.5.x is no longer supported

✔ Easy to configure

Simple File Manager follows the standard Joomla look-and-feel. It's intuitive and well designed so that it's very easy to use and to configure.

✔ Automatic notification system

Simple File Manager can generate automatic email reports in order to alert users when a new document becomes avaible to download.

✔ Download Report

✔ Customization

It supports a lot of customizations and it's very easy to use and configure.

✔ Security first

In Simple File Manager every file is protected by external access via an .htaccess file and is stored in a random-generated path in order to increase storage security.

✔ Localized

This component supports multilanguage websites and comes already traslated in English and Italian, but you can get other translations via the localized Joomla! communities.

Ease of use

... if no such bugs.
Feature request:
- Allow to hide "new file" button per category
- Allow external links as file source (eg. FTP links)


Functionality

Why not allows to upload archive file(rar)?I have a few files and they are either large/multiple to combine the archive and wanted to share

Ease of use

And as you can specify to display the icon of the file, because as pointed out but it is not.

Owner's reply: Hi "a b",
who told you that rar archives aren't allowed? Simple File Manager accepts any kind of file provided that its extension isn't in the forbidden extensions list.
I invite you to deal about any kind of issue you're encountering via the support link and not in the reviewing space of the Joomla Extension Directory. I'll be glad to help you solving your problems.

Regards,
G.M.
