  2. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following commands to detach the RBS provider from the content database:

    $cdb=get-SPContentDatabase ContentDatabaseName

    $rbs=$cdb.RemoteBlobStorageSettings

    $rbs.SetActiveProviderName("")

  3. Migrate BLOBs from the File System to the content database:

    $rbs.Migrate()

  4. Uninstall Remote BLOB storage from the content database:

    $rbs.Disable()
