Re: File/Folder expiration

Hi there @bhybner
 
When you add a file/folder to your Dropbox account, it gets synced to the website and any other connected device. If you want to remove it, you can delete it.
 
However, if you want to share content with others but have an expiration date for them, you do so with a shared link. You can find more info about this here
 
Let me know if you have any other questions!
