How can I copy a file to a file share

Hello,

I'm new to Alfresco so please bear with me if my question sounds ignorant. In this .net core API project I'm working on I need to copy files on Alfresco to a file share on our network. I was wondering if it's possible to do this? If so, can you point me to where I can find documentation about this feature or how I should go about this task? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure whether I understand what you mean.
You can try to use dotcmis client library
https://chemistry.apache.org/dotnet/dotcmis.html
or you can use alfresco rest api

Hi @pshen & welcome to Alfresco!

Firstly, we all have to start somewhere, so you're question certainly does not sound ignorant! Smiley Wink

I suppose it depends on whether you're copying items individually/ad hoc (then @kaynezhang has shown you can use the API or CMIS) or you want to copy all items (then you could map a network drive in Windows). 

Perhaps if you could outline your requirement in a little more detail, that will help us to help you.

Take care,

Re: How can I copy a file to a file share

Thank you for your prompty response. In the project that I'll work on, the nodes in Alfresco that's on server A will need to be copied over to server B via an API on server C. I looked at dotcmis client library as suggested by @kaynezhang and it seems that it works for downloading files from Alfresco but if I download files first to server C and then copy them to server B it'll not be that efficient. I was wondering if there's a better way of doing it? Thanks again for your help!
