Mass download attachments ( bulk )

Hello
I found out that the file storage for attachments reached 95%. When I talked to users, they want to keep all the files for compliance puporse.

Do you have any suggestion on how I can mass download (15000) files from attachments and store in local share drive.

I can write code, do not have approval to buy anything

Thanks

Go to your Name-> Administer-> Data Management-> Data Export.  At the top you can include Attachments.

Thanks @Solees for the quick response.
I am using different tool to take a daily back of my data to SQL server. But I want to take back up of attachments from opportunites on regular basis (incremental if possible) not all data

Is there a way for me to put filter to only download opportunity created before certain date?

Enabler4Excel (https://xappex.com) can now download attachments with a simple SOQL query (e.g. SELECT Id, Name, Body FROM Attachment) and they will all get saved in the folder specified in Settings. You can also specify the SOAP timeout setting for it so that there was more time for larger files to download. More on this here: http://blog.enabler4excel.com/3jcv5k9gm

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.

They do support download of Static Resource & Documents too.

As an alternative to all services that were mentioned above, take a look at Salesforce data loader (https://skyvia.com/data-integration/salesforce-data-loader) by Skyvia. It allows either to download attachments as ZIP files locally or put them to file storages such as FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

You can use sfdx-hardis to export any files you want without installing packages or use a paid application :)
