Free Tool to collect documents from a database


I have around 1300 documents in a database which i need to extract and save to a folder.

This database is connected to a system and it is posssible to open each document and save it that way, but due to the quantity i was wondering if there was a tool to collect these documents automatically?

Any help would be appreciated,
