Explore the File System from T-SQL


The Indexing Service should be started before using the following code. The File content search relies on the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for the Indexing Service. The following query lists all the files that are in the path "D:\Test":
 
EXEC sp_addlinkedserver MyFileSystem,
   'Index Server',
   'MSIDXS',
   'System'

SELECT * FROM OpenQuery(MyFileSystem,
               'SELECT Directory,FileName
                FROM SCOPE('' "D:\Test" '')'
                ) AS Q

Note that the SQL Server file content search feature has been tested only with all components and all data residing in the same computer.
