I'm looking to copy a document to a network location on a scheduled basis. Anyone have a best practice on how to do that? I thought I could write a work flow, but since I want to copy to a non-SharePoint location, I didn't see any options with SharePoint Designer.

  • Can this copy folder and its contents to file share from document library?

I think using PowerShell script with windows sheduler is very usefull way. UPD. Question was interesting to me and i solved it.

$web = Get-SPWeb http://sharepoint
$spFile = $web.GetFile("/Documents/folder/document.docx")
$target = "\\networkshare\document.docx"
  • That's what I was thinking, I'm curious if anyone has done something similar and might be willing to share the few lines of code Dec 2, 2011 at 20:43

  • I've done it via Nintex workflow, but nothing programmatic like that. Dec 3, 2011 at 12:08
  • Nintex isn't free and this code doesn't need any additional tools. But it's up2u =)
