In Advanced Mode, an uploaded file is sent to the server in small packets (one at a time). The packets are saved in a temporary file until upload is complete. Use the TemporaryFolder property to specify the folder containing temporary files.

Note that files are deleted from the temporary folder in the following cases:

  • The file uploaded is complete.
  • After the pre-defined time has elapsed. This period of time is defined by the UploadAdvancedModeSettings.UploadingExpirationTime property and is set to 6 hours, by default. Note that the file is removed only if the server hasn’t been restarted during this time. If the server is rebooted during this time, the file will be removed in 6 days.
