SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My team is looking for a way to download all versions of a particular document on our site (or more generally we would like to back-up all versions of all documents in a particular document library). Is there a simple method to do this? My team does not have access to the server they are housed on, although I can navigate to the library by \\sharepoint.company.com\oursite\Library Name\ in windows explorer (I can't find past versions from here).

If possible, a solution that is not programmatic would be best.

You can use the normal export options to export a document library to disk, including all of the previous versions of documents in that library. Check out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607895.aspx

Export-SPWeb -IncludeVersions All

If you need all the documents downloaded as documents, you'd need a way to change all the filenames to provide unique names. You can get there with Powershell as well, although that might be considered a programmatic solution I guess :)
