    Hello, how can i make Contact 7 not to remove the uploaded files on my server even if i upload new ones over the form.. they shall stay there is this possible?

    I deleted:

    // remove upload files foreach ( (array) $wpcf7_contact_form->uploaded_files as $name => $path ) { @unlink( $path ); }

    But after a short time or new upload the file gets deleted is there a solution that the files stay in the folder?

    Thanks

    Do not do this. You are making a security hole.

    I need a method.. where users can upload the file via the form.. and it will be stored on the server.. and i get a email with the users email and filename.. so can take the file from the server.

    Is there any method to do this secure?
    Because users will upload files up to 100 mb and i dont want them to be attached as email ;) i want them on the server.

    Currently there is no secure method for that. 100MB is too large. You should do it with other methods than using contact form.

    Use Dropbox or Google Drive and allow only authorized users to share files. If you allow every user to upload 100MB size files, it's easy to imagine that spammers flood your disk space with large files in a few minutes.
