Google in itself does not allow you to set such an expiry date and time. However you can set this by including a Google script . I will not be able to give the Li know for the script here.
You can copy the script over the Internet and edit the script. You need to edit the script to add your Google drive folder and the date and time. Edit the time zone and run the script and authorise it.
