    Hello! I'm wondering how file uploads are handled.  Since we have a limited amount of storage space (I think 5 or 10 GB), is there an option to automatically delete file uploads a certain amount of time after they've been submitted?  We're worried about our file uploads exceeding the limit, so if we could automatically delete them after we've downloaded the file, that would be perfect.

    Let me know if this will work!

    Thanks,

    Jake

    You can not only delete uploads. You will need to delete your form submissions too in order to delete uploads linked to the submission.

    You can limit the size of files that are uploaded to your account by changing the settings of your upload element. See below how you can limit upload to only certain size of image files.

    Also below is how you can send all your submissions to DropBox hence you will have backup of your submissions in case you delete your submissions to free up space.
