1 Answer 1


Something like:

var context = new ClientContext("http://sp2010app");
var web = context.Web;
var list = web.Lists.GetByTitle("Shared Documents");
var items = list.GetItems(CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery());
foreach (var item in items)
    var stream = Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.OpenBinaryDirect(context, (string)item["FileRef"]).Stream;
    var filename = string.Format("d:\\images\\{0}", item["FileLeafRef"]);
    using (Stream file = System.IO.File.OpenWrite(filename))
  • error:"System.IO.Stream does not contain the definition for 'CopyTo' and no extension method 'CopyTo' accepting a first argument type of System.IO.Stream could be found"

  • CopyTo requires .Net 4, if you're using earlier version then see How do I save a stream to a file? Aug 22, 2013 at 10:12
