How to check-in a file to Sharepoint via a mapped webdav drive


  • Hi all,

    So I have successfully mounted a sharepoint doc lib as a drive with a  net use command... something like:

      net use S: /user:dom\username

    this is great for accessing stuff from the share that other people do; but whenever I create a file in there it goes into sharepointas checked out to me and no-one else can see it. What do I need to do to the file once I have created/updated it to make it check-in?

    Been trying this on a number of OS's (Win7, 2003, 2008R2); Had to enable the desktop experience feature to get the mount on 2008R2 and never got it working on 2003 but even on win7 I have this issue with the check-in.


    P.S. the end goal for me is to synch output from a number of scripts to sharepoint by using robocopy with the /mot flag to copy them to this sharepoint mount. So next problem might be checkout for update... but I'll setle for a check-in solution for now :)

  • Hi Juke, I'll raise it there; but it isn't really a sharepoint issue. It's a Webdav mount issue. I am not using the sharepoint API I am using a windows web folder mount to a webdav drive. They may be able to help but this is an OS feature not a Sharepoint feature.
