If I have files on my webserver in the root file is there anyway public can access them without knowing the path. For example if I have a file name 43453.pdf and I don't want it to be accessible to anyone, only those who have the path should be able to access it right? Is there anything else I need to be concerned about, I'm sure robots can find this info and maybe a hacker but I just want to know if its hidden from 99 percent of the public who don't know the location.

you should protect it then, as it is accesible as it is even if hard to find for most users.

Protect it by using password? What if its a zip file?
