snagit expiry

Hi,

I am sending some personal information to an organisation. They will need it for only 10 days or so. I am using Snagit to capture the image of documents and sending them the URL.

Question is, Is there some way to go about setting an expiry to the URL?  ie say have the URL expire after 10 or x days so there isn't any risk of having that rather important personal information going AWOL?

Thanks,
Tejpal

How exactly are you sharing the image? SnagIt does not create a URL. I suppose one may be created if you use SnagIt to upload to ScreenCast.com. But if that's the case, why can't you just delete the image off ScreenCast once you know they have seen it?

Further, if it's ScreenCast, I believe you can configure a folder that has a password and just upload the image to the folder and provide the password to the recipient.

Along with what Rick stated.

You can set expiring links in Dropbox.

The bigger question though is why not just email them the info/capture.
Then you also have a record that you send that info to them.

Regardless of what you do once they have that info in their hands, you can't make that go away.

@Rick Stone Yes it is via ScreenCast.  That's a great idea. Never actually logged into ScreenCast but can see I can delete picture as @Dubie suggested.   
Will also take a look at password protected folders which is a slightly different Use Case but useful nonetheless.

Thanks guys

Google Drive and OneDrive are also options. They both allow you to share a link to a folder or file and have that link expire after a time you set.
