3.2. Getting your files from PureCM

To access your files in PureCM you need to create a workspace on your local machine which is your copy of a stream on the server.

One of the simplest ways to do this is through the Windows Explorer Client. First you will need to have created a connection to the server and selected an active repository. note - you will be prompted to do this before you will be allowed to create a workspace.

Create a new empty folder in windows explorer where you would like the files to be placed. Then from the folders PureCM menu select the 'Get Files' option.

note - if you have not selected an active repository you will now be prompted to do so.

This will launch the create workspace dialog with the workspace path set to the folder you selected.

Create Workspace Dialog 

 1. This is showing you a list of streams in your active repository. You need to select the stream you want to download to your local machine. note - you can also expand a stream node and select a sub folder to just download a subset of the stream.

2. This is the directory that the workspace will be created inside. note - in the windows explorer client this will always be set to the directory you selected.

3. This is the name that will be used to identify this workspace. It is useful to use something short and unique so it is quickly recognisable.

4. If you wish to change the advanced options for the workspace you can expand them by pressing the + button. (this includes options such as writable or multipath workspaces.)

5. When you are ready to create your workspace you press the ok button. note - This can take a long time depending on the amount of data and the speed of the connection to the server.
