Hi everyone I have a Folder1 in my Server and inside that folder I have a Folder2 folder. So I am getting the file which is inside the Folder1 with this code:

public static SPClient.ListItemCollection GetPageItems(string listName = "Folder1")

    var pagesList = SharePointTools.ClientContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listName);
    var pageItems = pagesList.GetItems(CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery());
    SharePointTools.ClientContext.Load(pageItems, list => list.Include(page => page.DisplayName));

    return pageItems;

So it is using GetByTitle method but I can't get the files which is inside my Folder2. So how I can get all files inside my Folder2? Can someone answer?

  • What makes you think you cannot get items from Folder2 sub folder in your example? CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery returns all the items including from sub folders.. Oct 25, 2016 at 12:24

Try to use Caml Query with FolderServerRelativeUrl property

caml.FolderServerRelativeUrl = "/sitename/Documents/Folder1";

For more details check Get all files under subfolder in Shared Documents list - SP Object Model

Or using SPQuery

SPFolder folder = list.RootFolder.SubFolders["Folder 1"];
SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
query.Folder = folder;
query.ViewAttributes = "Scope=\"Recursive\"";
