Returning Restricted Files Using the SearchDataSource Control



I have a SearchDataCource control that returns both pages and files. I have a large number of restriced files which are brought back in the search results if the user has the correct permissions to view them.

My question is, can these files be returned by default, even to anonymous users (who would then be prompted to log in if they followed the link to the file from the results)?

You have a setting called "AccessLevel" on the SearchDataSource that you can set to "NoAccess", but I guess that would return pages that the user don't have access to as well.
