Hi! I have a folder containing many zip files. I wana restrict access to each file to a specific user (each file is for a specific user) in a way that other users cant access it even by having it's direct URL. How can I do this in webamtrix? Does the type of file have anything to do with the solution?

If you use windows authentication and impersonation, you can set file system level ACL's. But that's not a good idea.
You should make your own "file server" on asp.net base. The concept is here: File Download in ASP.NET and Tracking the Status of Success/Failure of Download[^]. You can extend it to check user access stored in a database for example, and of course to give access not only to a specified file.
