Understand what this feature tracks & does not track
Keep in mind, this feature does not tell you how many times an file has been viewed. If a file is inserted in a webpage so that viewers see it inside the webpage, this tool will not help you. But if you’re inserting links to non-viewable files (like TIFFs and the like), then you can track downloads using this feature.
Steps for viewing file statistics
Hover over Dashboard and press Files.The File Manager Menu will pop up.
Click on the file whose statistics you wish to view (but not on the checkbox; see Figure 1) and select Properties.
Select the Statistics tab.
View the statistics.
What?! No one downloaded a picture of a cute little puppy?
