It does count the amount of downloads, but it only works with your downloads in the publicly accessible uploads directory. You can choose to secure this, but that doesn’t work. Once someone has the link to your file, it can be downloaded anytime, without this plugin counting anymore. So there is zero protection. When you move your downloads to another location outside the web root, the plugin cannot find your files anymore. So for me this plugin is a no-go. I will remove it and find something better.
