By the way, there is a free tool here:
http://www.outlookfreeware.com/en/products/all/OutlookAttachmentsSave/
And this even can cut your attachments replacing it with links:

All these tools can be set to automatic mode right in your Outlook.

Can you give me an example of how to use these tools.  Do I set up a new rule to use the tool, etc.

The only issue I have with the OutlookFreeware is that is does not let me select an individual outlook folder.  I have to select a data file so essentially it will save all attachments from all emails.   Any ideas on that?

OutlookFreeware add-in allows you to select any folder(s). Just create a new Rule, select Incoming and/or Outgoing messages processing and press "Select Folders" button to achieve the result.

Thanks, that is what I did.  It only showed the data files, not the folders within those files.  I have rules set up to move emails from my inbox to other folders.   See attached

That either selects or deselects  that folder.   Nothing expands to show a folder list

That's strange. Checkboxes are for selecting and deselecting folders. Triangles (to the left from checkboxes) are for expanding... What OS do you use? Vista/Win7/x86/x64 ?

And double-click storage also does nothing, does it?

Sorry, thought I was covering your qustion and also letting you know I had selected.deselected.   The triangle only shrinks the existing list.  Does not expand to folder list.  
I'm Win7/x64
