How can a policy be implemented that will limit how long a file is saved on an FTP site? For example, after a file is placed on an FTP download site, it will then be deleted two weeks later

How can a policy be implemented that will limit how long a file is saved on an FTP site?

For example, after a file is placed on an FTP download site, it will then be deleted two weeks later.

Also need to know how to set up a policy that will automatically remove a file from an FTP site as soon as it has been downloaded.

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is being used.

This cannot be done with group policy.
You will need to create a script that runs periodically (as a scheduled task) that deletes files more than x days old.
