Hi I want to share quite large-sized files on SharePoint but the quota space is too limited. I was wondering is there any method or free 3rd party tools that allows the mapping of files in Shared Documents to my local hard drive, bypassing the quota limit. In fact I found one http://store.bamboosolutions.com/sharepoint-file-share-library.aspx which may provide the features I need but the license fee is quite hefty.

  • Can you advise what version of SharePoint you are using please? 2007 / 2010 / 2013 – Steven D Andrews Feb 27 '13 at 15:39

    He tagged it SharePoint Online... not sure, but I think that's your answer. – RJ Cuthbertson Feb 27 '13 at 16:06
  • Quite right. I didn't see that. – Steven D Andrews Feb 27 '13 at 16:49
  • FWIW - I don't think Bamboo is supported in SharePoint Online. – Dave Wise Feb 27 '13 at 17:23

You could possibly leverage a page viewer web part and point it to the local file system. This might be a bit problematic with Sharepoint Online though. On premise it wouldn't be an issue.
