Is there a way how to empty the upload folder on a regular basis or when they are sent successfully they are deleted from the folder?
Right now my foxcontact upload folder has grown to 880MB.

Cedric

Hi Cedric,
this is a known issue that we want to solve in the near future.

The main problem is that Fox Contact can't determine when the file uploaded stops being necessary, considering that apart from email notifications, Fox Contact integrates with Joomla Messenger and third party software.

However, reasonable solutions include an option to delete automatically oldest files, or to remove them once they have been successfully attached to the notification email.

We will certainly introduce these options in the next major version (4.0), and you will be automatically notified through this topic.

If you want to know whether it's safe to manually remove these files, then the answer is yes. Fox Contact does not rely on them. You can clean the upload directory periodically.
