uploaded files should expire 30 days out -- automatically

I have a folder used by physicians who upload random files they want me to have before they admit to the hospital. The uploaded files should expire after 30 days.  I should not do anything on my part other than indicate to the folder, in some manner, that all uploaded files can only exist inside the folder for 30 days.  I cannot go to each file and set the properties manually.

 

Let me know if you have a thought on how that might happen.

 

Thank you.

Define "expire". Do you want access to the files to be removed or do you want the files deleted? There is already a way to set a deletion date on a folder or subfolder.
