In OpenERP v6, we could add storages (Database, Internal & External) but in OpenERP v7, I can't find it, though I can see the table in the database.

Is there some configuration to be done or a module to be installed in order to see that?

Arnis provided the answer from another question (529).

To enable the equivalent of Internal Storage of v6, a system parameter (Settings->Technical->Parameters-System parameters) has to be changed:

For example, setting ir_attachment.location to file:///filestore.

Then the filestore folder has to be created in the OpenERP root (/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/) on Ubuntu installed by the .deb.

If you want to store the files somewhere else or if you want to implement the equivalent of the External Storage of v6 or any other kind of storage for that matter (FTP, S3, Dropbox, ...), you will have to override the ir_attachment object.

This method seems to be more flexible in a way, but it could be made more user-friendly by creating an interface that could implement several file storage methods right at the start.
