CW-files has been kept simple and only does what it says here. However it has many powerful potentials:
E.g. You can setup a subscription system with any of the subscription extensions available for Joomla and restrict access to the download module(s) to users with a valid subscription. To avoid users sharing the download link for free to others, all download links in CW-files are hidden behind it's smart download mechanism. You can even store the files outside the server path.
CW-files doesn't provide it's own upload mechanism, just use the Joomla media manager or any other means to get the files on the server. Simply tell CW-files the path where the files are stored and then just conveniently select them from a dropdown list in the files manager.
Since it is a module and not a component, it is easy to use it in several different scenarios all over your website. A public download area in one place, a restricted one in another, a beautiful media library with PDF previews or just a simple download list for zip files.
