I have a question about how documents are stored in document libraries.
So I recently transferred over a bunch of files from our network drive to the document library using a windows explorer window with the address
http:\\intranet. This gave me access to everything that is on the SharePoint website. I see all of the documents in the database associated with the website in the AllDocs table when I do a
SELECT query. My concern is that the amount of files added would remove a lot of space from the server that is running the intranet website. When I go to look at the actual drive, I don't see any space removed from the server hosting the intranet website. Why is this? Is there a way to access the files directly without using the
http:\\intranet url in a windows explorer window?
