Remove documents alone from Document library and should keep all the folders hierarchy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have document portal in SharePoint 2010. It contains the site which is around 100 GB file. I have planned to archive them. I should keep all the folders hierarchy. Just I want to remove files alone in the respective folders. Is there any way to do it? Please guide me on it.

    Thanks & Regards

    Create a List view with files without folder view. For achieving this, go to Create new view, under folder settings select the second radio button. Once the view is created, you should be able to see only files without any folders. Now select each file and move to archive location or configure a workflow to make the movement. Once the files are moved to archive you can delete the copies from the current view. This would ensure that the folder structure is intact but files are archived.
