What I have tried:

foreach (GridViewRow row in grdCustomer.Rows)

                var isChecked = (row.FindControl("CheckBox1") as CheckBox);
                if (isChecked.Checked)
                    string filename = (row.FindControl("lblFileName") as HyperLink).Text;

                    byte[] bytes;

                    string fileName, contentType, version;
                    string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["constr"].ConnectionString;
                    using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constr))
                        using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand())
                            cmd.CommandText = "select uploadfilename,filename, Description, version,ContentType from upload_test where filename=@filename";
                            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@filename", filename);
                            cmd.Connection = con;
                            using (SqlDataReader sdr = cmd.ExecuteReader())
                                bytes = (byte[])sdr["Description"];
                                contentType = sdr["ContentType"].ToString();
                                fileName = sdr["uploadfilename"].ToString();
                                version = sdr["version"].ToString();

                                // string dateString = DateTime.Now.ToString("");


                        //string path = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/" + version + "/");
                        ////FileAttributes att = File.GetAttributes(path);

                        //DirectorySecurity sec = Directory.GetAccessControl(path);
                        //var appDataPath = Server.MapPath("~/db/");

                        //if (!Directory.Exists(appDataPath))
                        //    Directory.CreateDirectory(appDataPath);

                            Response.Buffer = true;

                            Response.Charset = "";
                            Response.ContentType = contentType;

                            Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", string.Format("attachment; filename={0}", filename));
                        //string id = path + filename + contentType;

Look at your code:
Does not specify a file: it specifies a folder "db" which resides in the main site folder.

You can't "send a directory", just a file. Use Path.Combine[^] to add the actual filename to the end of that before sending ...

And in future do us all a favour. Don't just "dump" your code on us: format it using the pre tags via the code widget above the text box so that the formatting is preserved and the syntax highlighter engaged. And delete commented out code as well - it's of no use to us!
As it is, you need to re-indent that correctly (CTRL + K, D will do it) and then you might see that you send the bytes and the file together anyway.
