Let us tell you how you can use XfilesPro’s new import/export features to control your files in a simplified way.


If your Salesforce file storage space consumption has increased over time then you can use XfilesPro to instantly reduce it by almost 80-90%. This feature is especially useful for Salesforce enterprises from the industries that deal with a lot of files & attachments across objects. By using the ‘Export’ feature, such enterprises can easily export the files & attachments (stored in their Salesforce Org) to any external storage of their choice, all in a single call. 

In just a few simple steps, enterprises can start exporting their files instantly. Once the export process is executed successfully, the exported files can be easily viewed in the external storage. Not only this, XfilesPro also lets the admins open those exported files from within the Salesforce Org, which can then be easily viewed in a reduced size.

  1. Select your external storage provider, choose object and set your filter criteria

If there is ever a need to access and bring back the Salesforce files that are stored in the external storage, it can easily be accomplished by using the ‘Import’ feature of XfilesPro. The import feature allows admins to link the files & attachments stored in the external storage to a Salesforce object in the form of an ‘attachment’, without physically moving the files back into the Salesforce Org.

This prevents the primary Salesforce file storage space from being again filled up during the file import process. Once the import process is completed, the imported files can be viewed within the Salesforce Org. Here are the simple steps that admins need to follow to import the files & attachments. 

  1. Select the external storage system from where you want to import the files
