Configuration of a dropzone

We are working on the plan for integrating an application and Aperture. The latest was that a dropzone was going to be set up where we could store all the relevant files, which Aperture could then pick up. However, we have some questions around Aperture dropzones .
Given the sensitive nature of this data, we need to determine whether the use of dropzones will add or remove risk for us. So, would be possible to help us to understand the following:
- Can a dropzone be setup prior the upload of the dataset?
- If we set up a dropzone, we understand that a server folder will be created on the same server where the Aperture instance is located. To avoid permission issues, would be possible to have the dropzone in a different location i.e., another server? who can modify the dropzone location?
- If a file is uploaded to a dropzone, how long will it be there before being deleted? is there a setting in Aperture to enable automatic deletion from a dropzone of a processed dataset?
Many thanks in anticipation

- No the dataset creates the dropzone when the setting is selected (You could use an external system as a dropzone:
- Yes https://docs.experianaperture.io/data-quality/aperture-data-studio-v2/set-up/install-data-studio-on-windows/#database-folder-locations or https://docs.experianaperture.io/data-quality/aperture-data-studio-v2/get-started/configure-external-systems/#configureexternalsystemdropzone
- Dropzones are checked every minute "If the file is successfully loaded the file is removed, otherwise it will be placed in an error folder and no further attempt will be made to load it." https://docs.experianaperture.io/data-quality/aperture-data-studio-v2/get-started/configure-dataset-dropzone/
Adding this if it is helpful for your sensitive data: https://docs.experianaperture.io/data-quality/aperture-data-studio-v2/prepare-and-move-data/encrypt-data/0
