    Hi,

    Under Settings > Misc the location where uploads are stored is shown. It is usually wp-content/uploads If Organize Uploads into month is checked that will be part of the url. So the URL should be something like

    http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-uploads/05/yourpdf.pdf

    The 05 is assuming you uploaded the file in May.
