DescriptionI'm trying to save a large number of scripts from my Scripts Library in SharePoint to my local machine.
SolutionSometimes it is helpful to open a SharePoint library like the Scripts library in Window's File Explorer for bulk file manipulation, such as copying all current scripts to your local machine. In order to do this, you have several options:
From SharePoint itself, open the library and depending on your version (2010 or later) in the Ribbon click on the Library tab then the button "Open in Explorer".
Convert the URL to a UNC path and open directly from File Explorer:
If your library URL is http://winshuttle.mycompany.com/mysite/mylibrary/forms/allitems.aspx then the UNC path would be \\winshuttle.mycompany.com\mysite\mylibrary
- Replace the http:// or https:// with two backslashes "\\".
- All other forward slashes get replaced with one backslash.
- Take the URL only up to the library name.
