Bulk export/download from Sharepoint document library
Posted on 2010-09-02
I’m wondering if there’s a relatively easy way to periodically dump all of the files from a Sharepoint document library to a non-Sharepoint storage medium; i.e. save all of the document attachments from the Sharepoint document library to a USB drive. In a library of 500-1000 documents, it wouldn't be feasible to download them one-by-one. In this particular scenario, doing a Sharepoint backup/restore isn't feasible. We'd like to store them in Sharepoint for the workflow, document control, and auditing benefits, but we need to be able to take these documents on the go. We need some sort of Sharepoint Document Library Export/Download utility.
Has anyone ever come across anything like that?
