    Hi,

      I was wondering how we could go about creating site functionality that automatically deletes old "Images and Documents" files from a specific "Images and Documents" folder?  We basically have an Images and Documents folder that contains some user uploaded files that we want to automatically clean up after X days.
     Does this exist in Sitefinity or would we need to custom develop it?

    Thanks
