Description
a newer version of v2.13 is here!

autoExpire will delete or archive your files or folders at the time you preset.

In the modern age, we are faced with the increasing digitalization of our lives. One effect of that is the huge volume of files we create, download, and received every day. Many of these are time-sensitive, such things as draft reports, news articles, digital receipts, invoices, coupons, event invitations, etc, are no longer useful after a specific date, and if they remain on your storage, they take up your storage space, clutters up your folders, and makes finding something useful among them close to impossible.

autoExpire will help you fix that. When you receive a file, you may set up, through autoExpire, an expiry date for the file, and the method of disposal after the date, be it archiving or simple deletion.

With autoExpire, you can be sure that your computer is always organized and never cluttered.
