Hello,

I have a client who is wanting to share misc files via ftp. They are asking if there is a Software product that will allow them to make the files only available for a certain amount of time...Perhaps 10, 20 or 30 days and then expire the file and make it no longer available for download ?

Thanks !!

Hello Paul,
FTP Fast offers a month period.

Other than a solution like that, I would suggest manually removing the file from the FTP Host after the required time frame.
Hope this helps!
