Auto delete older documents

Hello everybody

For security reasons I need to auto-delete older documents of a specific "Site".

What is the best way to do it? 

I found "scheduled job" documention but I'm not sure to well understand how to use it.

Thanks a lot

From development point of view you may implement a daily custom scheduled action, that based on the effectivity aspect for example (or a custom date property), deletes the corresponding expired content. You can also develope a custom behaviour or content rule on a site for setting a default expiration date (e.x.: 1 year) when applying the cited aspect. 

You may take a look for this addon, it is more or less the same idea:
