SUSHI Feature - Import Documents (Upload File Scructure)
This feature allows you to import entire directory trees into a Sharepoint Document Library. It will loop through all documents from the source folder and all subfolders of the source folder and recreate that file structure within the target sharepoint document
library. It also removes any illegal characters, forexample % and # which are valid windows file names, but not valid sharepoint document filenames.
Important: you need to be logged in under an account that has access to the database server. If you are logged into the sharepoint server with an account that is not an administrator on the SqlServer you will get an access denied. Also note that your account
must have the same password on both servers, or use an active directory account.

Detail: Blocked FileTypes
SharePoint does not allow files with certain filetypes to be uploaded. You can change this list here:
This is set from Central Administration-> Operations-> Blocked File Types.
Adding extentions to the textbox in SUSHI will let SUSHI know which extentions not to upload. The SUSHI will also create a log of which files are skipped because of filetype.
