Control access to a file using joomla

I'm using Joomla to manage my website. Certain pages of my website are restricted using Joomla's access levels to registered users.

On these restricted pages I include links to files which can be dowloaded
e.g a link to  "dir1/file.zip"
where dir1 is a subdirectory of public_html.

This method is insecure because if a user types in the url
they can download the file without having to login.

Is there a way I can restrict access to this file so that only registered users can download it?
