    Hello @arafat1023 ,

    Files being deleted 1 hours after being sent to save more space from your server. It’s a default behavior of contact form 7.

    But there’s an option if you don’t want to delete the files.
    Go to Contact Form 7 -> Drag & Drop Settings then check “Send attachment as links” option.

    Second option is to add this to your theme inside functions.php


    function remove_action_auto_delete_files() {
    remove_action( ‘template_redirect’, ‘dnd_cf7_auto_clean_dir’ );
