Unable to export/copy documents out of SharePoint 2007 libraries

Hi, A client had an issue a few months ago where their MOSS 2007 home site collection had to be restored after a major crash, it now works but they have loads of issues with the restored site(no need to go into) now I am trying to migrate the Data (files and folders only, no security or metadata) to a SharePoint 2010 installation, the problem is that I am unable to get any of the files out of SharePoint. I decided against an upgrade or any form of site migration as I might only be taking the problems with me. i am just trying to copy the files using the "Library - Actions - Open with Windows Explorer". The Explorer view window opens but if i select a file and move it into a folder on the server nothing happens, If I select a folder with files and folders in it then only the root folder is copied over but it is empty.  i don't want to repair any of the issues with the old site as it's only wasting time, can anybody think of a way to get all of the data out of Sharepoint 2007, without taking any of the lists or libraries or any other Sharepoint settings. I only need to keep the folder structure and files within them as i don't need any metadata and am recreating the security again seperately on the new SharePoint setup. Anybody have any ideas or know of free/trial products that i

New to Sharepoint companyweb and deleted all folder permissions by mistake

Hello.  I am just delving into the world of Sharepoint and testing to see if it will help our company meet it's needs for accessing files remotely as well as giving us collaberation abilities we currently don't have.  We recently purchased a new Windows 2008 Small Business Server which includes Sharepoint 3.0 and I've been messing around with the companyweb page.  My current goal is to emulate how we are using network drives.  There is a drive for each department and then a shared drive where common files for eveyrone are stored.  Rights are maintained using security groups. In the companyweb, inside the Document's section I created a new library named "Department Files" then within that created folders for Accounting, Customer Service, HR etc.  Being completely new to Sharepoint I was editing the permissions to the Accounting folder but forgot to add the domain administrator before deleting the existing rights.  Now the folder is no longer visible and I can't figure out how to edit the rights to it. The permissions that were removed were: CompanyWeb Members, CompanyWeb Owners, and CompanyWeb Visitors. Where can I go to see this hidden directory and change/restore the permissions?  Since this is all testing stuff I can also delete it and start again.  There isn't any info that I need to worry about retaining at thi

SharePoint 2007 - Windows 7 - Explorer View (Leaves a copy in recycle bin)

Hi All, I am facing a strange problem with SharePoint 2007 & Windows 7. I open an existing word document from my PC(Windows 7) and click "save as" and provide a SharePoint document library file path (\\machinename\sitename\DocumentLibraryName) and save the file.

ASP.NET Security Vulnerability and SharePoint 2007 (Microsoft Security Advisory (2416728))


With the recent security advisory issued by Microsoft for all ASP.NET applications it was highlighted by Scott Gu that SharePoint applications are at risk also. Scott provided a link to a script which would run on your web-server  to determine if there are ASP.NET applications installed on it and if it was vulnerable or not. I ran this script on my SharePoint server and noticed the following web.config files highlighted as being vulnerable:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\template\layouts\web.config
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\template\images\web.config
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\isapi\web.config
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\wpresources\web.config

Could I follow the instructions provide by Microsoft in the alert and modify these files? If not, how do I protect my web applications from this threat or are they at risk at all?

Sharepoint 2007 publishing site home page displays unknown file type security message

Using workflow and permissions - Sharepoint 2007



I have a calendar where we register all the software releases and the respective team effort (in hours).

The ideia is to create a workflow with 4 steps:
Step 1 - New entry created in the calendar (workflow starts) by an user with approval permissions.
Step 2 - The assigned user edits only the fields that he has permission to do it. How can I do this?
Step 3 - After the assigned user (from Step 2) fills the information, the user from step 1 approves the change.
Step 4 - If the assigned user (in step 4) tries to change the aproved entrie change it must not be possible. How can I do this?

Having Problems creating a development copy of a fairly complex live site, sharepoint 2007


Hi All,

I have inherited a sharepoint distribution from a previous set of contractors, which I am now trying to set up for a developer hired to fix a few bugs in custom code.
This sharepoint installation consists of a farm that includes the following: - Not Configured - Windows Sharepoint Services Incoming E-Mail, Windows Sharepoint  Services Web Application - Central Administration / Excel Calculation Services / Office Sharepoint Server Search / WSS Incoming email / WSS Web App - Office Sharepoint Server Search / WSS Incoming email / WSS web app

I have a development machine with a single install of sharepoint / mssql 2005 that I would like to set up as a test server for code/database changes

I set out thus to export (stsadm -o export etc.) a copy of the live site, and import it into my test server. This gave me a lot of errors regarding features, which I looked up to be custom solutions that were not installed, so I installed those, and attempted the import again, this time another error regarding features missing. I checked the features/template directory and noticed on live there are a few features that are not listed in the solutions panel, these look to be mostly custom webparts

Custom permissions for a list in sharepoint 2007



I have a requirement wherein I want to give a group permission to add document but not to edit them. I have already created a custom permission group. But the issue is that my document library has custom fields.So when a user of that group uploads a single document he is redirected to EditForm.aspx and when he clicks "OK" he gets access denied error(understandably). So I created an event handler to give the user edit permission on item adding and removed the permission on item updated. But now when I add a new document, a new folder or upload multiple documents, Item Updated event is not called and thus the permissions for that group are not removed.

Any ideas how to achieve this ?

Thanks, Tejas

"List only" only permissions in Sharepoint 2007


Dear All !

I have assigned only the following Special Permission Levels (out of the 33) to users in a simple Document Library:

List Permissions

  1. View Items-View items in lists, documents in document libraries, and view Web discussion comments.
  2. View Application Pages - View forms, views, and application pages. Enumerate lists.

Site Permissions

  1. View Pages - View pages in a Web site.
  2. Open - Allows users to open a Web site, list, or folder in order to access items inside that container.

With these, the users can list the content of the DocLib as its needed, but my problem is they can still open the items. I want them only to see the list of items, but prevent to open them.

If i remove the View Items rights they lost the ability to view the list of items in the DocLib which is not desired.

Could anybody give me any hints how to setup such thing.

Thank You
