Download file from a OneDrive share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I am using a C# Console application for testing.

    I have used the following code and I have downloaded a file from onedrive, but this file is a csv file but it contains HTML code and not the actual information.  I am not sure why this is?  How do I get the actual file from onedrive and not what seems to be link data.

    string remoteUri = "http://www.contoso.com/library/homepage/images/";
    			string fileName = "ms-banner.gif", myStringWebResource = null;
    			// Create a new WebClient instance.
    			WebClient myWebClient = new WebClient();
    			// Concatenate the domain with the Web resource filename.
    			myStringWebResource = remoteUri + fileName;
    			Console.WriteLine("Downloading File \"{0}\" from \"{1}\" .......\n\n", fileName, myStringWebResource);
    			// Download the Web resource and save it into the current filesystem folder.
    			myWebClient.DownloadFile(myStringWebResource,fileName);		
    			Console.WriteLine("Successfully Downloaded File \"{0}\" from \"{1}\"", fileName, myStringWebResource);
    			Console.WriteLine("\nDownloaded file saved in the following file system folder:\n\t" + Application.StartupPath);

    What I am getting back is like HTML code:

    <html>
        <head>
            <title>Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.</title><meta name="title" content="Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online."/><meta name="description" content="Store photos and docs online. Access them from any PC, Mac or phone. Create and work together on Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents."/><meta property="og:title" content="CHX"/><meta property="og:image" content=

    What the actual file contains is user information:

    ID, Fname, LName ectt.

    1, John, Doe.

    Thanks
