Re: Conversion of bin format files into its original format?

There is no need to "convert" the files, as they are not changed in any way.

The only thing you have to do is to identify what is the file type, and then simply change the extension from bin to something else, like doc or pdf.

Using linux, you can take advantage of the "file" command line utility, which will give you the right file format.

You can use it as follow:

$ file af5e0877-7158-4700-b421-22fcef72ee1a.bin
af5e0877-7158-4700-b421-22fcef72ee1a.bin: Microsoft Excel 2007+

As you can see, the sample I got is a xlsx file, and I could simply rename it and open it normally.

Nothing changes in the Alfresco side. You have to do the same thing.

Talking about finding out what the file is, honestly, I don't know, as I don't use Windows.

Have you tried google?
