I have created a Sitecore form where I am added a File Upload button and uploaded a file. Also, I have used the Save Data option to save the data to the Database once I click submit button.

Now I can able to see the data in the database in the table [sitecore_forms_filestorage].[FileStorage] with the Filename field containing the name of the file I uploaded. For example, I have uploaded a word document named "Test Document.docx" and it is showing in the database. But I have no idea where the physical document is stored in Sitecore.

I have searched in Media Library but it is not present. I need to retrieve this document and allow the user to edit the document which I am currently not able to do. Can you please help me how to find the uploaded document in Sitecore? I have attached screenshots of the forms and data for reference.

Forms Designer

Forms DB Table

Thanks in Advance Vijay

When you select a form in the Form Panel and export the data in excel like below.

You will get the data in excel along with the file path to download like this.

Now when you open this URL in the browser, you will be able to download the file.

So You can use this way to get your uploaded file.

If you want to manage the file storage for the form, then you can follow this Sitecore document to do the modifications.


Hope this help.
