No because it may delete incorrectly uploaded files which need to be reuploaded. You can setup and execute own script in Settings - Events if you want.

I don't have any examples. You can execute any program or (.bat script) which then can delete such file.

windows os isn't easy to use when you dealing with automation. you need create own application.
knowledge of language programming is required which means you also have to install other applications needed.

but in linux os, you don't need create or installing application to implement what you want.
all the necessary components have been provided since you finish installing the os.

create a bash script:
tailing (using tail) and maybe selecting pattern (using grep) the last log file of zoom file uploader to see what the files/directory which are already uploaded. then using tailing and grep output, search for files or directory then delete it.

find /path-to-files/$filename -type f -delete
or
find  /path-to-directory/$directoryname -type f -delete

for automatic search and delete already uploaded file/directory you can set cronjob

NB: zoom file uploader also works well on linux through wine.

It is the same on Windows. You just used command line "del" command.

It would be really great that if the upload fails this upload it will be uploaded normally, and if the program cannot upload the file it will stay on the hard disk to upload it manually.... But if the file is uploaded correctly delete it.... It would be a super cool option.

I could donate again if I had this option. :D

You technically can delete files after upload. There are just some serious reasons I do not offer it
- if you upload the same file multiple times, my program does not know if it was already uploaded to all sites (complicated to check whole queue etc.)
- if the file is uploaded but for whatever reason the server does not save it correctly. It is not correctly uploaded and the file would be deleted.
