Redirect to sign on for download link?

I have a document download link for existing users of my app. The download link works correctly, but if the user is not already authenticated they receive the following 404 error: 'The specified File doesn't exist or had been deleted' which is very misleading.

I feel like they used to be directed to sign in first (if not already authenticated), then the file would download. How do I insure this behavior?

    Is there no way to provide a download link which prompts a user for a login if not already authenticated?

      I don't have a direct answer to your question, but if you are willing to let them download without being authenticated then you could use the checkbox on the file attachment field to allow users to download without signing in.
