How about any "404 Not Found" error in your Files area actually display a standard "file not found" page to the user and (optionally) generate a notification to the Owners providing the URL used in the attempt?

This approach is common in CMS platforms. It lets your subscribers know what actually happened, ultimately allows you to fix the file name, doesn't interfere with any other use cases, and generally may be preferable over silently redirecting the person to the main Files page.

Just another idea,
