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

And what happens if you click these triangles (to the left from storages)?

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
