Download files and folders from sharepoint to local

  Asked By: Callie    Date: Dec 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3856

There is this request to synchronize the files and folders in Sharepoint directories onto the local drives of 10 client PCs (download from sharepoint to local). There will be a daily job to sync the files and folders.

Besides using a 3rd party software (like Colligo, which is not encouraged in our context), how else can this be done?

If two-way synchronize  capability is required then one option is to use the out of the box functionality of sharepoint  2007 and Outlook 2007. Instructions on how to set this up can be found here: office.microsoft.com/.../HA100819571033.aspx. Using this method, users can:

1. download  the files  from the document library into their computer

2. Work off-line on the files they have downloaded

3. Synchronize off-line changes to the SharePoint document library when they are re-connected to the SharePoint site

Instructions on scripting the 'connect to outlook' function can be found here: vspug.com/.../
