    I am trying to saving the file on the disk in the Images & Documents, i make modificaion in the web config Library provider as stated

    My Library provider is in web config

    <add name="Libraries" streamingProviderName="Files" streamingIsEnabled="True" urlRewriteFormat="~/{Provider}/{LibraryName}/[Name].sflb.ashx" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="False" defaultMetaField="Name" applicationName="/Libraries" allowVersioning="False" allowLocalization="True" localizationProviderName="" allowWorkflow="False" securityProviderName="" versioningProviderName="" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.Libraries.Data.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Libraries.Data" tagEditorTemplate="~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Libraries/BatchTagsEditor.ascx" />

    But it is not working and still saving the file in the database.

    Please suggest

    Hello Nauman,

    You have not modified the proper section. You should have modified <libraries> node of the web config as shown below

    <libraries defaultGenericProvider="Libraries" streamingProviderName="Files" streamingIsEnabled="True">
            <add providerName="Libraries" publicationDateField="Publication_Date" />
            <add name="Image" title="Image Library" defaultExtenstions=".png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif" metaKeys="Author, AlternateText, Extension, Name, Height, Width, Size, Category"></add>
            <add name="Document" title="Document Library" defaultExtenstions=".doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .pdf, .ppt, .pps, .pptx, .html, .xls, .xlsx" metaKeys="Author, Description, Extension, Name, Size, Category"></add>
            <add name="Custom" title="Custom Library" defaultExtenstions=".*" metaKeys="Author, Description, Extension, Name, Size, Category"></add>
            <add name="Video" title="Video" defaultExtenstions=".wmv" metaKeys="Author, Extension, Name, Size, Category, Description"></add>
            <!-- Viddler can co-exists with other libraries-->
            <!--<add name="Viddler" title="Viddler Library" defaultExtenstions=".avi, .mpg, .mov, .wmv, .wma, .3gp" metaKeys="Author, Description, Extension, Name, Size, Category"></add>-->
          <!-- before using extensionMapping be you uncomment LibraryHttpModule in handlers and httpHandlers sections -->
          <extensionMapping defaultExtension=".sflb.ashx">
            <!--<add key=".jpg"/>
                    <add key=".pdf"/>
                    <add key=".csv"/>
                    <add key=".xls"/>-->

    I hope that this helps

    All the best,
