    Hi, actually there is a setting on the shortcode, Local File Action for this purpose. If you set it to delete, the local files will be deleted after being transferred to Dropbox.

    Hi Nickolas, it not seams to work

    here is my code:

    [wordpress_file_upload uploadpath=”/uploads” uploadrole=”iscritto_al_sito” placements=”…” uploadtitle=”….” notify=”true” notifyrecipients=”xxxx@xxxx.com, xxxx@xxxxx.it” notifysubject=”***xxxxxx***” notifymessage=”xxxxx: https://www.dropbox.com/home/xxxxxx” widths=”plugin:300px, filename:300px, selectbutton:150px, uploadbutton:150px” filebaselink=”true” dropbox=”true” dropboxpath=”xxxxx” dropboxlocal=”delete”]`

    “xxxx” hides data that I consider sensitive

    where em I wrong?

    Thanks

    Usually it takes some time until the file is deleted. It might be one minute, one hour or one day (it depends on the internal scheduling mechanism of WordPress).

    Can you please confirm that files are still not deleted?
