Good day experts,

I have several EMC Documentum eRooms (7.4.2) where I need to extract/export/download the documents stored on the eRooms to the client's NTFS file server.

The environment is:  eRoom version 7.4.2.
We have to get the documents onto a NTFS file system.

How can I successfully get these documents out of eRoom onto file system?

I have tried the eRoom copy function and then you paste on NTFS but many folders are missing after the paste is complete - this option doesn't work.

I'm now trying drag and drop one top level folder at a time but this seems impractical as well.

Please help

Hi

Yes I have seen that.  If I understand correctly, that function exports the entire eRoom as one datafile (.erm) - question is - what do i do with the datafile once it's on disk?  How do I get the users's documents out if the ERM datafile?

Thanks

From what I understand you can rename erm to zip and then remove the files.

Hi

Have lost my eRoom access for now.  Will test as soon as it's restored.

I was never able to restore my eRoom access and as a result removed that part from my project scope.
