Link to Traditional File Shares from SharePoint 2010

Forgive me for possibly not using the right terminology.  I'm trying to determine if Sharepoint 2010 supports linking to traditional files shares so they can be presented as Document Libraries inside Sharepoint.  When searching I find lots of info about the capability to map traditional network drives to a Sharepoint Document Library, however that is essentially the opposite of what our customer needs to do.  Instead they want to keep a large repository of files out of a Sharepoint database, but still present it as a document library to their users.  I know that the BDC supports linking to External Data Sources, but I thought that is just for crawling, and searching external data stores.Is it possible to present a traditional file share \\servername\share as a document library (i.e. https://home.widgets.com/Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx) in Sharepoint 2010?It looks like the capability is there especially because Server 2008 R2 refers to default shares as Libraries.Thanks.Matthew

How do I trust network shares under visual studio 2010 / .NET 4.0


Hello there,

This question was posted here, but recommended that I move it here.

(this is copy/pasted)

This question has been asked before - but it is not answered and seems to be sealed so I cannot post anything on it.

Anyway, as the post suggests, I'm unable to do any development work while my projects are hosted on the dev server.  I've tried doing the CAS policy (which works for VS2008) and even done the command line suggested here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bs2bkwxc(VS.100).aspx and regretfully nothing works as yet.

To be more specific, I am working on a solution with 2 projects, one WCF service and the other Silverlight.  I am on domain admins AND I have specific rights on all files and folders granting full control on the dev server. The error I get is:

Could not load the assembly xxxx. This assembly may have been downloaded from the Web.  If an assembly has been downloaded from the Web, it is flagged by Windows as being a Web file, even if it resides on the local computer. This may prevent it from being used in your project.

It is not from the web,

Trusting network shares in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4.0


I've seen a couple of similar threads to this going around, but none of them seem to have been adequately addressed.

I work for the CS department of an educational institution where each student's "My Documents" folder is redirected to a network share. Their profiles are deleted after they log off, so we encourage them to use this share to store projects and whatnot instead of saving to the local machine. Our classic problem with this has been the CAS policy's distrust of network shares. In VS 2008 and earlier, running caspol would allow us to set up a trust relationship:

E.G: caspol.exe -m -pp off -ag 1.2 -url file://\\UNC\path\* FullTrust

However, when we upgraded to VS2010, this command no longer worked. I notice that the caspol tool has been included in both .NET framework 2 and .NET framework 4 distributions, but after trying both we still cannot save files to network locations and saving to drives mapped to "non-trusted" locations still behaves a little weirdly.

I have read the documentation that states that CAS is deprecated, but I'm wondering if there was any structure left in place to enforce trust relationships and how one might circumvent that, since I am obviously still unable to save to these locations.

Any help on this issue would be much appreciated.

Search Results from File Shares - Respect Permissions?????


I'm curious: If I have SP 2010 Enterprise and I've set it up to crawl and return search results from documents on a file share, will it respect the access permissions that the logged-in user doing the searching has?

I know I have to allow read-only access for the content manager account within SP, but I did not know if it would check access permissions of the user account when returning results.


Problem with security on ISS?, why can i write HTML file but not XML files


hi guys

I have a web app the manages articles, users can generate articles which we store in the database and also in a folder inside the application in html.  We also have the ability to generate real time alerts, to targetted audiences but the list of audiences was cached from an sql query on the web server and at times, the cache was cleared by the server. so i wrote an http module, and the module now runs the query using a timer, and this then wrties the audiences to an xml file within a folder in the same application (same as my html files)

Now the weird thing is im getting the system.io unauthorised access exception, when i try to delete and overwrite the xml file.  Yet this doesnt happen when i write the html files.

Now although my users do login, there credentials are maintained via an sql database table, not windows security or the asp.net security model. 

Ive checked the folder that we publish our applications up to (its a mapped folder like a virtual directory), and i cannot see the network service or asp.net machine accounts usually used in iis5 or 6.  But i dont have the ability to change this anyway. 

Why would the html file write fine, and the xml file throw this error. 

I also changed my code to used HttpRuntime.AppDom

File access across the network, credentials, logonuser, impersonation



I have an application that has both a server and client... the client can exist on any computer.

I have a need to allow a client to export a set of files.  The server process that will be exporting the job runs as the Local System account.

When I want to export resources to a remote UNC such as \\servername\share that I don't have permission on I would like to prompt my user for credentials.

How do I then use these new credentials to authenticate and then System.IO.File.Copy(src,dst)?

I've found several articles on impersonation and I can impersonate a local user, but not a remote user it seems... 

I'm programming in C#.


How to change the content of an html file using an aspx file?


Hi everyone,

I would really like to have a little help, it should be easy but i can't find the answer

and it's been a while since iv'e done something with asp.net..

what i have now is a regular html pages website.

in some of the pages i have galleries,

I would like to make an aspx page to manage the content of the galleries or any other set-in advance content.

It's kind of a CMS, but it's not, since i would not be using a database.

what i want is just to get the admin's content from the aspx page

and send it to overwrite the images or the content of the DIVS in the html page.

at the final outcome, i will only want to have html files and one aspx file for the admin's editing use.

what is the most simple way to do that without using CMS? 

Thanks a bunch!


Is there a way to export a datagrid to an Excel or html format file?

Hi all.. thanks for taking the time to help in advance!! :)

I've written a win application that has a datagrid which displays certain contents from a database, is there a way to allow the user to export the contents of that datagrid to maybe an excel file or html file so they can print it out themselves? I've done a lot of googling and most i could find were for web applications and not winform.. can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks very much guys! :)
