Question

How to automatically delete files off Spaces after a certain amount of time?

It looks like this discussion was looking for the same thing but never really got an answer.

Is there an easy way to set an expiration timeout for files to be deleted?

Thanks!

Hello there @didiermalenfant

I’ve had the same setup as it was needed for a project. I was using s3cmd to manage the storage and as such, I created a script to do this for me and the script was executed on a corn job every day.

I can’t seem to find the exact script but this link provides a similar solution using s3cmd

I hope that this helps!
