Q: "How do I bulk-export files (Attachments, Content, or Documents) from Salesforce?"

A: I didn't know of a really good answer to this one, so I built FileExporter, a custom tool that I think works well (feedback always welcome!)

Unzip contents to any directory on your hard drive and double-click +FileExporter.bat.

Requires Windows XP (or above), and Apex Data Loader.  That's it!

Also: my Dreamforce 2010 presentation (video recording, slides, and script) has been posted to the Presentations section.
