    Where does Jotform keep files that are uploaded? Is it secure?

    Asked by sy.yco on August 08, 2014 at 03:41 AM

    Also, it says that I have 100mb upload space.  Is it possible to age the documents uploaded? Keep them for only a short amount of time since I integrated with Google Drive anyways to free up the said space and allow for more form submissions?

    All of your files are stored on our secure encrypted servers.  We have several redundant data centers throughout the world also in case of failures.  We do not ever delete your submission data and because of this it is not possible to setup the automatic deletion of your submission data based its age.  You would need to go through and occasionally manually delete your uploaded files if space is an issue and this would indeed allow for more space for new submissions.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
