Are File Uploads Time Limited?

  1. Hi,

    My Apologies if this is a silly question but I can't seem to find an answer in the docs, are the file uploads time limited in anyway i.e. at any point are they removed from the gravity forms upload either due to time or rewritten by new uploads due to folder size?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

  2. They are not time limited at all and will remain on the server until you delete them or delete the entry. When the entry is deleted, the uploaded files associated with the entry are deleted.

  3. Is there a plugin that can manage the uploads folder in a way that uploads can be deleted after a certain time ? - ie you want to be able to say to clients a specific time frame you will keep their files.

  4. There is no plugin I know of to do that. A quick search brought up this discussion: http://stackoverflow.com/q/6315891

    I think you'd have to come up with your own script to manage this.
