Is there any solution in exporting all the attachments from a list without code? I do not have Visual Studio installed on my machine and am looking for a way to just grab all the attachments and place them in one location on my hard drive. Can Excel or Access do this? Is there a SharePoint Designer function?

This list is on a SharePoint 2010 site.

You can map a drive to the List: http://community.office365.com/en-us/forums/154/t/5216.aspx

The attachments will be under the Attachments folder.


What Robert Lindgren mentioned above - PowerShell would be a good way. Here's an example from a blog post:
