we’re using dropuploader here, just for make it easier for applicants to upload their files: https://lhjobs.entwurf.digital/bewerben/
We’ve just updated all plugins and the drop uploader and I recognized that the temporary files in /wp-content/uploads/cf7du_temp are not deleted after the e-mail is sent.
We’ve not checked any option for storing the files neither in the general settings of the drop uploader or in the contact form settings.
The e-mail is sent correctly with the attachement(s). But one strange issue is also happening: The “E-Mail(2)” of CF7 has no content in the attachment field but the attachement(s) are also sent to the receiver of the “E-Mail(2)” and we can’t change that.

I can’t login to your site (/wp-admin address returns 404 page). Can you tell me, what version of Drop Uploader do you use?February 5, 2021 at 9:37 am #1449This reply has been marked as private.February 5, 2021 at 10:05 am #1450
Just to let you know.
I checked the other installation of Drop Uploader we use.
It’s the same there – files are not deleted after they’re sent. So they seem to be stored on the server forever. I think that should be fixed as we didn’t set an option to keep the files on the server.
The “E-Mail(2)” issue can’t be tested there as we don’t use this option of CF7 there.

Mail 2 attachments are fixed. Thanks!
But after the test, the uploaded file is still inside the folder
Should it be deleted immediatly or after a specific time?

Temp files will be deleted daily, so please check if files were deleted tomorrow.July 15, 2021 at 4:10 pm #1517
the files are still not deleted.
Bought another license today for a third project. So I was triggered to check, if the files now are deleted. But it’s still not working.
Files are stored over weeks and months, nothing happens to them. And – worst case – you can access them via Browser. Sure, the folder names are better than the most passwords, but there should be a .htaccess-file installed with the plugin.
Please fix that issues asap!

Do you use Apache web server on NGINX?
Also, can you give me FTP access to your site, I will check error logs on your site.July 18, 2021 at 7:12 am #1522
we use a simple Apache, no NGINX.
Unfortunately I can’t give you FTP access as our sites are live-websites of a client.
If you tell me where to find the error logs, I can send them here.
As it’s not working in three installations, I think, you should check everything on your side again. Probably most of the users don’t check if files are deleted, but will have the same problem.
Our workaround is a cronjob that’s deleting all files once a inside the folder
