Exporting Attachments from Salesforce (pdf and or excel)


 We have around 1000's of uploads done over the course of years and reaching our limit on storage. I can download the file but one file at a time is not a solution production wise. Please could you recommend on how to achieve downloading/exporting the pdf's to computer in a bulk method. 




Zip the files.

Hi F22Raptor,
I came across the newly developed app in AppExchange where you can download almost any Attachment or File under one or multiple records all at once and also help to download StaticResource and Documents too.

Please have a look:

S3- Link is FREE App for Salesforce - Amazon S3 Connector. Its also available on Appexchange. 
  1.     Attach file related to any Salesforce object on Amazon S3.
  2.     Move existing Salesforce files and attachments in Amazon S3
  3.     Multiple file uplaod.
  4.     Multiple file download
  5.     No file size limit for upload.
  6.     File access control capabiliy.
  7.     Track file downloads by users.
  8.     File exlorer capability.

Here is our email address. Let us know if you have any query.
