With openerp 7, the attachments are stored with encryped names and we must use openerp to open them with their real names.

We need to download those files to an external system, but we cannot recognize them with their encrypted names.

Is there any solution so we can access them without using openerp?

[odoo-v9]: how to store attachment in file store/System instead database in odoo?-->

1. Automated

By adding one new parameter in service configuration file e.g. openerp-server.conf

data_dir = <File store path>

2. Manual

Add parameter in command line when starting server.

--data_dir= <File Store Path> 

Thanks Annadurai. I'm using openerp7, and I'm already using file store system to store files. But the thing is that these files have encrypted names when accessing them from system directory. I need to have them with their real names.
