SharePoint 2013 as a File repository

Hi,
I have SharePoint 2013/SQL 2012/Win Server 2012.
I want to migrate scan files from my File server into related Folders in a document Library  (Say.... D:\ drive, Size >5 GB).
What is better way of doing this migration -
1.any utility available free or can be developed via code ?
2.Is there any New  storage way in SQL server 2012 for repositing scan files into share-point 2013 Document Library.

Hi,
for migrating the content to a library you could use a Powershell script using SharePoint client object model (then you are able to set meta data if this is necessary).

About size: is this the size of the whole folder OR the max size of a single scan?

The max file size for SharePoint is still 2GB.
There is no new way of storage - just how deltas in files can be stored (e.g. changing a paragraph in a word doc). For handling huge files I would recommend to think about using RBS (Remote Blob Storage) for SQL Server/Sharepoint.

About editions:
Which editions of SQL Server and SharePoint are you talking about: Express/Foundation or Standard/Server or Enterprise/Enterprise?

Hi,
Powershell i have some idea on codeplex.

about Size,
 source Folder Size on File server >5 GB.
SharePoint Doc Lib->folder1,folder2,folder3, in these folder, we need to migrate scan files upto 10 MB in each folder.

SharePoint 2013 ENT,  SQL 2012 STD,  Win Server 2012 (all new series)

Hi,
then I would simply write a Powershell script as you have full control on it and it simply can exactly do what you want. Most tools I have seen are both costly and have always a limitation which ends up in manual work afterwards.
