Did you miss to download your samples from Technet Gallery Here is how you can do it.

Technet Gallery has been there for almost 15 years for community to share scripts, files, utilities, tools etc for Microsoft Products.

With the retirement/closure of Technet Gallery, there are large number of scripts/reports that I have uploaded to Technet for my blog and now am receiving the feedback from the blog readers that they cannot download the files.

When you visit any of my blog post and find a link to Technet for sample download, you will be redirected to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/samples/browse/?redirectedfrom=TechNet-Gallery which does not help.

In this blog post, we will see, how to download the samples from Technet Gallery even after the retirement/closure.

1. Find the Technet Gallery URL for the sample that you wish to download. From this blog post, the Technet Gallery URL is: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/SCCM-Configmgr-2012-01a44c2d

2.Now append the Technet URL to the following website.

http://web.archive.org/web/20200318065516/TechnetURL

The final URL will be something like the following.

http://web.archive.org/web/20200318065516/https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/SCCM-Configmgr-2012-01a44c2d

Now right click on the attachment and click on open in new tab.

This will start downloading the sample for you.

I have tried this method for few Technet Gallery samples for my website and it worked.

all the Technet Gallery samples of mine is available at http://web.archive.org/web/20200318141858mp_/https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/site/search?f%5B0%5D.Type=User&f%5B0%5D.Value=Eswar%20koneti

you can use this method for any Technet Gallery samples that you find missing and post your feedback in the comments section for alternate options that you know of.

I will try to gather the samples and upload them to GitHub.

I hope you find this post useful.
