Handy little drupal module for tracking/counting file downloads

first I found this which looked ok:

but then found this which seems to do the job even better:

http://drupal.org/project/download_count

Both modules seem to require the drupal file handling to be set to "private" (admin/settings/file-system). You can tell it's working with the private files because the url changes and ends up something like /system/files/myfile.dat rather than /files/myfile.dat

Dounload_count seems to come out the winner just because it's got a handy "download count" link just where you need it at the top of the navigation. ;)
