  2. Find the section Default Files Expiration right below the Custom File Details section. 
  3. Select the checkbox to enable this expiry setting. Set the number of days after which the file will expire. NOTE: The files are simply archived and NOT permanently deleted allowing an administrator to retrieve expired content.
  4. Select the checkbox to enable this expiry warning setting. Set the File Expiry Warning. The story author will be notified the amount of designated days prior to its expiration. The author will receive another warning of expiration the day of expiry.  

NOTE:  Publishers can set a unique expiration date for every file they upload in the Options section of File Details. See Updating and Managing Files within a Story for full instructions.
