Can I move the data from a SBS2003 Sp2 Sharepoint site to a network file server

I wish to move the data from a Sharepoint site on SBS2003 to a local network file server.
Is this possible? Possible down sides?

The question is : what do you want to achieve.
If it are just documents, then you can. Either by hand or by writing a small application that goes through all your document libraries and moves/copies them to the fileshare.
If it is also web content etcetera it's gonna be a lot harder. So back to question 1 : what do you want to achieve :)

Open the site in windows explorer and copy the files to a network share.

I can see in the not to distant future that the server drive containing the database  is going to be to small
I wish to have only the document libraries moved. It is mainly used for document colaboration and version control

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Will the site then reference the files that are moved to the file server?

MsShadowCommented:
Then you can copy them by hand,by making use of the explorer view as Robbie suggested.

Moving the files by hand stops them being referenced in the website. I guess that its more complicated to host the libraries on another server? This would be ideal for me.

Do you have any ideas in this regard?

Ok, so if I understand you correctly you still want the documents to be available on the website? If you want that you should think about hosting a new content database on a new drive and move the site using stsadm to the new drive.

Yes MsShadow and JBlond

Looks like I need to do a little more work than I had hoped. However I  will try to set up another content database on another drive and move the site.
This might take a couple of days with current situation, office moves etc

I'll check back when I have some result
Thankyou for your  time and advice
