How to send self destruct file online ?

1. Introduction

Why you might want to send a self-destructing file.
This is another scenario I’ve seen a bunch of times, and it’s something that comes up quite often. The problem is that it’s easy to forget about (or ignore) a feature when you’re using it for the first time — but once you go back and look at your code, sometimes you will see something that made sense to do in one context but not in another. This post is about showing the difference between contexts and solutions; how to use both effectively; how “invisible whitespace” affects code quality; and how to fix issues with code size.
The idea behind this post is to demonstrate two basic rules of programming:
1) Break things up into small pieces (which makes them easier to understand)
2) Don’t break things up into small pieces (which makes them harder to understand).

2. How to send a self-destructing file using Gmail

A little-known feature of Gmail is that you can send an email with a self-destructing file attached, which runs in the background. The feature was introduced in 2007, but it was only recently discovered.
Although it may seem like an odd feature for an email program, it is actually quite useful for a number of situations. For example, if your friend accidentally deleted a document by mistake or simply forgot to save it (and you want to tell them that they should delete it), you can just send them a self-destructing email with a file attached. From there, they will have to delete the file themselves (or allow the system to do so).
It’s important to note one important caveat: although the sender will see the message as self-destructing, your friends won’t. This means that anyone who has access to your message history within their own email account will be able to read its contents — which could be embarrassing!

3. How to send a self-destructing file using Dropbox

For those of you who have ever tried to send a self-destructing file using Dropbox, you’ll know how difficult it can be. It does not matter how much you love Dropbox. If you can’t figure out how to send a self-destructing file online or through your laptop or mobile phone, I guess that tells me something about your life.
I don’t want to come across as rude and all like “Oh no! What did I do?” but (as far as I know) there are two ways of sending a self-destructing file online or through any other device:
a. Send via email
b. Send as a text message (SMS)

When it comes to sending a self-destructing file via email, there are two things that need to be true:

a. The recipient must have read the SDRF file before they open the email in order for it to be effective!
b. The sender must have read the SDRF file before they open the email in order for it to be effective!
In other words, if you send a text message that includes an SDRF file, but only one recipient has read said files, then the message will probably not work because they won’t have seen them yet. If you start with someone who has read them and then send them an email with one of your own SDRF files, then what happens is that their device will not detect the error and they’ll get some weird error message like “ImportError: No such file or directory” or something similar — which doesn’t help at all because now you don’t get anything useful back!

This is why sending by email is so frequently my first choice when I have time/energy/knowledge but it should never be my first choice when I need something immediately: no matter what happens, if I send by email my SDRF files will never work and this is more likely than not going to result in my being fired from my job ;-). When people ask me why I use Dropbox instead of another alternative (which seems like a good question), I usually say “My wife works at Dropbox and she knows everything about how we do things here except how to send files online securely” (and for good reason). Those words probably don’t mean anything anymore but go on thinking about them anyway…

4. How to send a self-destructing file using Google Drive?

In the spring of 2011, while working at a start-up company, I was sent a link to a website that promised to send me a self-destructing file.
I tried it and it worked as advertised. I’ve been using this trick for about two years now and have never looked back. (Note: when you use this trick, you technically don’t need to enter your password. The only thing that needs to be entered is the URL).
The usefulness of this trick is that your file will be automatically deleted after 24 hours if you don’t want it anymore. In fact, for some people it may not even be necessary to enter the URL of the file because they are downloading files from websites all the time that are self-destructing, i.e. they don’t require any extra steps on our part.

This method is actually fairly simple:

1) Install Google Drive
2) Go to https://drive.google.com/drive and click “Upload” (or upload it just directly in Google Drive).
3) Next, select “Open or save an existing document” (or “Open or save an existing PDF”) and type in the URL of what you would like to send as a self-destructing file. You can preview the document before uploading but not after uploading; either way, once it’s uploaded, your document will simply disappear forever without any further action being required on your part. Note: Once you have received the link with instructions on how to send yourself a Self-Destructing File (SSF), there is nothing more to do but click on “Send.” You may also want to check out this post for more info about other ways of signing up for SSF if you don’t want me sending you one over email.

Another tip I give when people ask me why I’m interested in SSF is that since iOS devices started becoming less powerful over time (iPad versus iPhone), there has been less incentive for people who publish things via Apple’s app store rather than get published by an existing publisher like us who has already been around for years doing things exactly like this one before Apple took them down! We think we probably have enough momentum right now so we’re willing to do everything we can when we reach expectations set by Apple—in fact, we believe our product could be used as a tool in other companies’ products and applications so we would certainly be.

5. Conclusion:

When sending a self-destructing file is and isn’t appropriate
Before you send an email, always think about whether the sender is sending it to the intended recipient first (and if not, whether the recipient is legally authorized to receive it).

As a general rule, sending a self-destructing file (e.g. a log file) should be done using HTTPS. The reason for this is that all of the following are true:

1. The sender’s computer must have “secure access” to send an email (this means there’s no way your friend can see what you’re up to).
2. One of the recipients must have “secure access” to receive the email (there’s no way your friend can see what you’re up to).
3. Both of your friends must be “secure users” on Facebook or cannot see anything that isn’t private or public and not visible in any way other than how it is presented online (there’s no way your friend can see anything that isn’t private or public and not visible in any way other than how it is presented online).
If either of these conditions isn’t met, then you need to ask yourself: what am I doing here? Are you trying to protect someone else from seeing something they shouldn’t? Are you trying to get revenge on someone else for something that happened years ago? If so, then perhaps it is time for some self-destruction therapy.
