So I want to redirect certain requests which formerly went to www.example.com/Files/ to files.example.com/ while preserving the relative address of the request. what I mean is that a request to www.example.com/Files/xyz.zip would get redirected to files.example.com/bin/xyz.zip. I know how to do this by creating a redirect for each file, but I was hoping to be able to create a single rule that handles all files at once.

Any ideas?

Try adding the following code into your .htaccess file

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(.*)\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

That is just a redirect code to make all non-www request point to the www.example.com domain. You may or may not be able to edit this to work the way you want it but that's something for you to try out. Good luck!
