I want to export all files that we uploaded in our SharePoint with SQLlobEditor.

Which database Sharepoint use to put those files and which table do I need to look in?

Hi,

In SharePoint the basic rule is that there is one database for each site collection, which may contain one or more sites. Site collection databases will normally have a prefix of WSS_Content.  Within the database I think the documents are held in the AllDocVersions table.

Here are couple of scenarios and usage:

1. If site is running, You can use explorer view in The doc library and export the documents just like windows explorer

2. If site is not running or if you wish to use DB only, Then you can use third party tools like :

hi author,
take it from leaf name column of the content database.
also, if you like to take all docs from a library/folder/sub site/site collections:
easiest way is to use actions > open with windows explorer.
also, 1 very good toll is avail for content migration: content deployment (codeplex).

Our SharePoint's server is down so our only way to access files is to go directly in database.
