How to restrict unregistered users (guests) from downloading files from tpdownload? Seems very simple, but I can't find it as a setting.

Done by category I believe, edit a category in the downloads and you should see Allowed membergroups settings there.

Just to add one more comment. Yes, this way is a solution. But by this way those files and folders become invisible to the guests and therefore not indexed by Google. 

When writing this question I was thinking something like when clicked on the file the guest to be redirected to the registration window.  ::)

That's a good idea and should be added as a feature.
