    The supervisor can create a pdf file from a database.

     The problem is after the file is created others user can access the pdf directly.

    At url.pdf.

    I want to murder url.pdf after 30 minutes.  Thus no one can access it since its does not live anymore.


    I do not have any experience doing this any ideas and suggestions would help.


    //create file code above

    //open file

    string path = ResolveClientUrl("~/Appraisal/" + Empl.SelectedValue + ".pdf");

                    string encodedPath = System.Web.HttpUtility.JavaScriptStringEncode(path, true);


                    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "open", "window.open(" + encodedPath + ", '_blank');", true);





                //delete file


                string location = Server.MapPath("~/Appraisal");

                string delFile = location + "/" + Empl.SelectedValue + ".pdf";






                catch (IOException iox)
