I have 50+ products, some with long user Manuals in PDF form.

Shopify's way of uploading a file and adding link to the product description is fine until I have will update that file. In order to update that file, I will need to delete that file, re-upload it with the new file. The link of that file will change. I will then have to update that link on the product page and all the other blog page that contain this file. If I don't do that, the link will be broken.

URL Redirects is not a good solution because it will create a Mess with 50+ links.
The only thread on the forum I saw about this is https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-discussions/permanent-link-to-latest-version-of-a-file/td-p/...

Anyone have a good solution?

I am building a simple file manager that supports directories, maintaining file names (which should solve your issue) and searchability. If you're interested, you can sign up here - https://simplefilemanager.torcellite.com/
