You can share a file with any user, even one without a FileCloud account, and then for security reasons you can limit the time the share is available. 

  • When the share expires, it is not deleted. 
  • After the share Expires date is passed, the link to the share will no longer work.

To set an expiration date when you share a file, you can leave most of the default settings as-is.

However, in SHARE OPTIONS, you must change the following setting:

Expires   to   Expires

This disables the use of the URL to the shared file after the selected date.

The file itself is not removed or deleted.

To share a file with an expiration date:

  1. In the system tray, right-click the FileCloud Sync icon () and select File Browser
  2. In the File Browser  window, right-click the file and then select Share.
  3. On the Share link pop-up window, click Advanced Options.
  4. On the Manage Share for file window, in Share Options, select Expires.

  5. A date appears underneath the radio button. Click the calendar icon to select an expiration date.
  6. In Restrict Downloads, leave the default of No Restrictions or  select  Restrict to and set a restriction.
  7. In Email File Change Notifications, leave the default of YES or to turn them off select NO.
  8. In Enable Password Protection, you can leave the default of NO or select YES
  9. A randomly-generated password is shown. You can use this or change it to another secure password.
  10. On the Manage Share for file window, in Share Permissions, leave the default of Allow Everyone.
  11. To save your changes, click Update.
