No, is there are no links (even deep-links) to the files, 
there is no way you can detect them (HTTP does not allows 
to "list" folders, such as FTP - even if some HTTP servers 
can make "directory listings" as default / handling -- but 
this can be considered a security risk)

You can however adjust the scope of the mirror, by using 
(set options/scan rules):

This will ensure that all links that can be detected in are being downloaded.
