comment IIS: How to receive an email notification when file is downloaded using a direct link
Thanks for an alternative approach and the code! Personally I'm trying to avoid interval timed scripts due to performance reasons. But your PowerShell code can still be run manually or maybe even attached to an event like HTTP request.

comment IIS: How to receive an email notification when file is downloaded using a direct link
Massive thanks for your effort Peter! I will reflect here on how it works as soon as I implement it.. Less important, but still curious.. Does this approach provide a possibility to know whether the download has been completed successfully? Or is it even possible with any approach?

comment IIS: How to receive an email notification when file is downloaded using a direct link
Thanks. Developing a simple web app that uses /download.php?file=filename principle was my initial thought. But it requires some time to develop and test, so it's my plan B.

comment Start/Stop IIS site automated as an administrator, which is not a built-in “Administrator”
@user2196728 That would work, but would also lead to 2 major security flaws. You have to enable the built-in Administrator account, and you will have to store Administrator login credentials unencoded. Most probably just in plan text format.

comment How to secure a single file download over HTTP on IIS?
@TessellatingHeckler Thank you, theoretically that should do it. Please post the content as an answer for those that are also interested. I must say this is a very complex way to do it. Personally I don't think I'm prepared to perform all these steps for every secure download I want to serve. Lets hope there is a more clean way...

comment How to run a mysqldump automated with SAFELY stored mysql credentials?
Ok. Thanks. Now I can answer your question. The encrypted storage of the MySQL credentials will protect from intruders that don't have admin access to the OS, but read files, run processes as a compromized service or a malware application.
