File System/Create File Failing with "make sure the path exists on your file system"

I am trying to save email attachments to a network share.

I've set up the data gateway and the connection is successful:

    Full path is \\My Path

 

I created a connection in flow:

Flow Connection.PNG

 

Here's my flow:

When it runs, I get this error:

The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '\\My Path/Attached File Name' exists on your file system.

 

I don't understand why it's appending the attached file name with a /.  Shouldn't it just be dropping the attached file into that folder?

 

??

Hi @CathyLMaurer ,

 

Please choose the Folder path from the picker, if you couldn't choose the path from the picker, that means the connection to the File system is invalid and please refer to steps to create a new connection to the File system.

Thanks for the link.  I created a new connection from the flow and it worked as long as I didn't set up the connection with the full path.  I set the path to a higher level folder and browsed to the one I wanted.
