I have website access protecting a directory. Within that directory I have subfolders for the purpose of organizing documents for download. When the link is clicked on the login box pops up however when you click "cancel" the document loads.

Is there anyway to keep the login box from reappearing.

If you are protecting your main directory, your sub-directory will also be protected as well. There is no way to "exclude" that directory from being protected.

If you are protecting your main directory, your sub-directory will also be protected as well.
