Am I able to run a report on Google analytics to find out how many times a file has been downloaded?

Hello,

This is absolutely something you'd be able to set up. It's called Event Tracking. The following Help Article will walk you through how to set this up:

It's important to note that you'll only have this data moving forward, you won't be able to tell downloads that occurred prior to implementation.

Take a look and let me know if you have any more questions or need more help setting this up.

All the best,
JD
