All Files section of SP Designer 2013 I have a folder named
Apps that has all of my front-end stuff (JS/HTML/CSS). What is the simplest way to download / copy the contents of that folder to my local machine?
You can open that URL in Internet Explorer. Or you can click Browse button from SPD
And now from Ribbon choose to open in Explorer.
Now you can copy folder/files and Paste in your local folder.
Since the folder is in Root we wont be able to browse it in Explorer View. Here is a workaround
- First copy the folder from SPD and Paste it inside a temp location (Say Assets)
- Now go inside Assets folder and Paste it
- Now Follow as I said above.. Open in IE and Then Open with Explorer
- After copying you can delete it from Assets folder.
Surprising nobody mentioned SPFileZilla. I wanted to do the same thing and stumbled across this fantastic piece of software. Works as defined - an FTP software for SharePoint and makes it super easy to copy folders and files to the local disk without the need for mapping any URL.
