Exporting Document Set as Zip file using Power Shell Script

SharePoint 2010 has a new feature called Document Set. Each Document Set can consist of multiple files. There is no functionality available on SharePoint UI where we can export all these files from a DocSet into a zip file. This can be achieved using Windows PowerShell Script. Here is the Script to achieve the same:

$docsettitle = $args[0]
if($args.length -eq 1)
    $maxSizeAllowed = 1000 ## ~ 1 GB
    $maxSizeAllowed = $args[1]
$web = Get-SPWeb http://localhost
$list = $web.Lists["TestLib"]
$rootFolder = $list.RootFolder
$docset = $null
foreach($docsetFolder in $rootFolder.SubFolders)
        $docset = [Microsoft.Office.DocumentManagement.DocumentSets.DocumentSet]::GetDocumentSet($docsetFolder)
$zipFilePath = "C:\" + $docsettitle + ".zip"
$stream = New-Object System.IO.FileStream($zipFilePath, [System.IO.FileMode]::Create);
$docset.Export($stream, $maxSizeAllowed)

Error While Opening Document Library in Explorer Mode

When I am opening a document library in SharePoint 2010 with Windows Explorer a error message is coming saying:
"Your client does not support opening this list with Windows explorer."

I am accessing my SharePoint site using the Windows Server 2008 with IE8. On further investigation I found that Explorer view of a SharePoint document library uses the WebDAV protocol. The WebDAV client is not installed nor enabled by default on Windows Server 2008 R2. To use this feature we need to install Desktop Experience feature and then we need to make sure that the WebClient service is started.

Suppressing Unsupported Warning with IE 6 on SharePoint 2010

The IE6 with SharePoint 2010 is not fully supported. It will throw a warning message if we open a SharePoint 2010 site in IE6. The warning message states:
"Your Web Browser will have problems displaying this Web Page. Changes to the site may not function properly. For a better experience, please udpate your browser to its latest version."

We can hide this warning message with a change in the master page. To remove this warning message remove the following line from the master page:
<warnonunsupportedbrowsers runat="server"></warnonunsupportedbrowsers>
