"FileStorage" is too low level:

   At the "FileStorage" level, an object is described
   by an oid, a serial (i.e. a timestamp, when the object was
   written) and some opaque data.

   Only the "DB" level above knows that the opaque data
   consists usually of two pickles: one describing the class/type
   and the other describing the object state.

You may try to transfer your data via FTP/WebDAV from your Zope
to the filesystem. However, it will only work, if the objects
have decent FTP-Support (which may not be the case).
