download current files in sharepoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to download documents uploaded on my company's sharepoint server.

We have thousands of documents uploaded, and I would like to download all these files at once to a livedrive.

i thought it would be under "actions" but i couldn't find such thing as download all documents in libraries.

if someone knows how to do this, please reply. Thanks!

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

Add edit drop down menu so I can edit pdf files in SharePoint


I have a pdf file that I'd like to open and edit.  The pdf file just opens, and doesn't ask if it should be opened as a read only or edit option.  My colleague is able to select edit mode as a drill down, but I can't figure out how to add this functionality into my document library... does anyone have a solution?

Storing .EXE Files in SharePoint



   New to SharePoint.  We just started migrating directories to our SharePoint server, and have encountered an issue storing .EXE files.  The error message says that it is denied by the administrator, however our IT team believes you can not store .EXE in SharePoint and that it is a system limitation.

   Could someone please confirm whether or not there is a restriction for the storage of .EXE files in SharePoint?  

   If this is just an administrator setup issue, is there a doc that would direct us how to remore this setting?

Thank you,


Migrate DB + files outside DB into SharePoint using SSIS and scripts


Hello, just wanted to ask a question about SSIS and SharePoint, any input will be greatly appreciated.... did search the forum but could not find anything....

So basically we have a SQL Server DB with the metadata ONLY, WITHOUT the related files(doc/ppt/pdf..etc) which should've been in the DB and they are on a separate web server inside folders. Each row in the DB has a key (column) which matches the related folder's name, so for row with ID #112, there's a folder named ID112 on the web server with the relevant files inside. There could be more than 8+ files for one folder.  

Now, I think it is possible but just wanted to double check, would it be possible to use SSIS and some kind of a script to get the metadata inside the SQL DB AND the related files inside those folders, combine & relate them and upload them into SharePoint as a custom list with file attachments? would they display the attachment normally (like the paperclip icon in a sharepoint list...etc) I wonder if anyone has tried this...

Any guidance, thoughts, suggestions for other solutions, inputs will be great!!! Thank you!!

Help! "You must rerun snapshot because current snapshot files are obsolete" every 90 minutes!

I'm having difficulty with SQL Server replication getting machines in the field to replicate correctly.   Here are the specifics of my installation:   100 remote tablet PCs using web sync to update. 1/2 running Vista, 1/2 XP (all latest updates applied) SQL Server Express 2005SP2 w/ cumulative update 6.   Server: Win2003 (all latest updates) SQL Server 2005SP2 CU6   There is 1 database. For each tablet I create a separate publication (PUB001, PUB002, PUB003, etc.) with filtered articles containing data for the tablet. Each publication has a single subscription -- the tablet to which the subscription is assigned. Subscriptions are set to expire after 14 days. Snapshot agent was run when subscription was created, and is set to run automatically every 14 days.     This is a "test" system which is scheduled to roll out into production in 2 weeks.   For the past month I have been running 6 tablets A-OK with no problems (had 6 separate publications/subscriptions on the server/tablets).   I use a stored procedure to create the publications and subscriptions. This stored procedure hasn't changed in months.   Yesterday, we added another 6 tablets w/ separate publications on the server, using the same aforementioned stored procedure.     The tablet application is set to auto-sync over the internet every 15 minutes.   Starting yesterday afternoon, at random, tablets would st

Updating Config Files in Sharepoint Farm

I am trying to update config files web.comnfig in the Virtual Directory of my server so that users are allowed to upload more that 50 MB of files in my IIS 7 server. Everytime i do the update it works fine but after few days when there are few changes then it removes the added elements itself and restore in the Original Stage. I used to edit my config files manually. I found a way of creating a config files and saving it to the Config Directory under 12 Hive in Server. Like the Content will be similar as follows <actions>    <add path="configuration/SharePoint/SafeControls">       <SafeControl          Assembly="System.Web, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral,             PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"          Namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls"          TypeName="*"          Safe="True"/>    </add>   </actions> I have to add following line <system.webServer>     <security>       <requestFiltering>         <requestLimits maxAllowedCon

Not always prompted for read-only or EDIT mode, when opening files with IE7, Sharepoint 3.0

Hello Everyone,   We use Sharepoint 3.0 and when I click on a document I get a pop up prompt that asks me whether I want to open the file in READ-ONLY or EDIT mode.   I use a machine with XP Pro that is running IE7.   A user called me today, also running IE7, and when he clicks to open a Sharepoint file he gets a different prompt - a simpler one that just offers OPEN or SAVE.   I don't care that his prompt looks different - the problem is that he is able to open the file, make edits, but then when he closes the file (using Excel) he isn't able to save his changes.   Excel only provides a save-as option for him.   This isn't a permission problem with his ID.   When I login to our Sharepoint 3.0 system as him, with his password (from my machine), I get the usual Read-Only / Edit prompt and when I open a file in EDIT mode I am able to save my changes with no problem.   Any thoughts on this?   Chris
