be carefull: use this method only, if you have no permissions on your attachments! the main advandtage to use attachment.php is, that you have full control over the rights to download depending on used forum & user groups!

Whit the way from “scotty” I can copy al my attachments to the Upload Server, that’s great. But what is, if the HDD full an I but in a new one? Than I have the same Problem as now.
than you'll need an attachment server with a bigger HDD. Pack your attachment into a gzip/tar, copy per FTP directly to the new server and put it in the same directory structure, as the old one. I've done this a few times when moving to bigger hardware.
