private file transfers

This looks like a handy, safe way to send large private files that you don't want hanging around in the ether forever...

I've opened (received) files, but not sent any so far.

But here we go...

...the link to these files should expire after 7 days OR 20 downloads:-

It said the link had expired. That's less than 12 hours! I'll have a look at this later.

Could have been a bug, or pilot error (i.e. me) or it could have been downloaded 20 times.

So let try again, this time with a 7 days OR 100 downloads limit...

That wasn't a bug. That was me testing the download limit! :lol: Don't even need to download, just click the button, then cancel. :twisted:

Yeah, I was bored! :)


[edit] corrected which post I was quoting
sholzy

I'm wondering around lost in the past, not knowing where the present is.
