how can i find the index of all downloads for a site

excelismagic used Ask the Experts™
some websites, change their links and then they forget to update the broken links.

for example the link in this page  refers to

which does not work and if i remove the some part of the link and only leave

it will work and will download.

i was wondering if there is a easy way to find the list of all publicly available download links for a website.

i used to work with long time ago, but that does not work anymore.

any idea how to get the list of download links for a website?
