I want to Disallow a specific file in a subdirectory beneath root - different sites I've looked at suggest:

Disallow: myfile.html

Disallow: /myfile.html

Disallow: /subdirectory/myfile.html

Which one is correct to keep obedient spiders away from the file?

... you should specify the path under document root including that subdirectory, so your 3rd Disallow: is the correct one.

You may look at
