Using Windows Explorer to upload a folder that contains "Bin" sub folder to SharePoint Document Libr

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 
Issue Description:
=============
 We have a folder that has the following structure:

-Photo
  --Resources
  --Bin
  --start.html

When going to a SharePoint (2007 SP2) document library (Shared Documents) and use Windows explorer view to upload the folder we get the following error:

\\SharePointWebApp\DavWWWRoot\SharePointSite\Shared Documents . Verify the item's location and try again"

After further testing we determined that the issue with the "Bin" folder. So, We have created a new Folder and created an empty sub folder called "bin" and we had the same issue. Other folders move fine.

We had this issue after we upgraded our environment to Windows 2008.

Analysis:
=======

It seems the issue is related to Windows 2008 platform since I was able to re-produce the issue on other environments. Also, I have created a new virtual environment and installed SharePoint 2010 Beta and we had the same issue. The issue does not happen on Windows 2003 platform.

On windows 2003, we had no issues with uploading a folder that contains "bin" sub folder and users were able to access the contents (in my scenario photos and images). Now, after we moved to Windows 2008 platform, now users can't view the photos/images via t

Problem Mapping a Sharepoint folder to a drive in Windows XP

  

I can map a folder on sharepoint from a Windows Vista machine with the following command line

NET USE z: "http://srv-nam/sites/folder-1/folder-2"

...and it works just fine.

If I then logon with exactly the same user to a Windows XP box and type exactly the same command I get

Failed with system error 67; Network name cannot be found

 

Note that this is not a HTTPS issue as the server is not set up to respond to HTTPS requests.

Does anyone have any ideas how I get the Windows XP box working please?


CRM2011 SharePoint document folder controlling access with claims

  

We would like to use CRM2011 and along with the document repository functionality of SharePoint. I'm currently using the on-premise install of CRM2011 beta and SharePoint Foundation. One of the requirements we have is for cases to be visible only to specific users, e.g. a team, specific user or some with whom the case is shared, who are managing the case. Unfortunately, this implies that access to documents in SharePoint should only be visible to those same individuals. Therefore other's should not be able to view, browse or search for and successfully find documents for cases they are not managing. 

I understand that all documents in SharePoint will be accessible in SharePoint as defined by SharePoint's security infrastructure.

Cannot open Word document from sharepoint Shared Documents folder

  

Hey Every body

I have a very strange problem. Our Company has a Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 solution running as our company Intranet solution. 

We have a solution where outside users, can gain access to a workspace site on Sharepoint where diffrent people can work together on projects that involves both out side users and internal staff. 
We have a folder called shares documents here we can upload documents that we want the other memebers off this workspace too see.
The problem is that internal staff can open up Word documents directly, but the external users are not able to open up directly these Word documents. Word just sayes that that is is unabel to open up the word document.
But when the users download the documents instead it works fine.

I have tries with both offcie 2003 and office 2007 and the problem is the same. But if i try to open up these documens via Open Office the problem due not exits, then is works fine. Why does Microsoft Word have these problems?

And is it just when the external users are opening up the documents directly from the sahred Documens folder that we have this problem.

The external users are connecting to our Citrix Netscaller security solution for authenticating purpoes first, after they have been validated through this solution, they ar

Sharepoint Explorer View - Different Folder Icons Question

  

I have multiple XP pro clients accessing my sharepoint server and utilizing Explorer View on Document Librarys to access and modify documents and folders.  I have 2 users whose folders show up differently than the others and have some strange capability limitations that the rest of my user base does not experience.  I tried searching around for a solution or at least an explanation to what is happening on these 2 machines.  The  folder icon is different on these two machines and shows 2 small documents over teh folder in the icon.  What does this mean?  How do i fix it so that this machine has the same folders and capabilities as everyone else?  Thank you in advance to any who can shed light on this subject.  I tried to post a screen shot, but this forum does not allow pictures.

 

Thanks,

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

  
The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

SharePoint: Add a Recycle Bin to Windows SharePoint Services for Easy Document Recovery

  

Windows SharePoint Services helps improve collaboration and workflow while protecting documents and intellectual property. But one feature is conspicuously missing - an easy way to back up and restore deleted files from document libraries. In this article, the authors take advantage of the extensibility of WSS and its server-side and client-side object models to build a restore feature that works like the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

question on attachments/document upload in SharePoint

  
Scenario: I have business need where I need to attach some documents to a document library. My users fill out a form, which is a custom List Form in a list called "Request" but on the same form I want to provide my users a document upload feature which will save the document to a document library called "Request Documents".

In other words, request information such as Title, Department, Description etc get saved to "Request List" (SharePoint List) whereas the documents attached/uploaded (if there are any from the user) while filling the same request form out, get saved in the "Request Documents" (SharePoint Document Library) with the same ID #. If Request ID was 100, then the uploaded document(s) in the Document Library should also be 100.

I tried a few techniques out, and I'm reading some more on Data Source Library of SharePoint but I believe I need some help from the community before I do anything further.
