Path does not exist when saving using File System

Hi All,

 

I made a flow that downloads attachments from mail to my file system.

I'm using On Premise data gateway on my pc, the root folder in the connection is "C:\Test"

 

I want to save the files inside "C:\Test".

 

inside the flow i tried to put in folder path of file system this folder:

"\"

i got this error:

The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '//File.xlsx' exists on your file system.",

 

When i tried to use this folder path:

"C:\Test"

I got this error:

"The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path 'c:\\Test\\/File.xlsx' exists on your file system."

 

I have no idea how to make it save into C:\Test

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks alot!

Hi Amir,

 

The path should work as expected.

Have you configured the gateways properly?

 

For your reference:

Re: Path does not exist when saving using File System

Yes,

All configured correctly.

 

I suspect that the issue is with the way the flow parses the location because as you can see in the error, these are the locations he is looking for in the 2 options that i tried:

 

my input path to save in: "\"

path he tried to save to: '//File.xlsx'

 

my input path to save in "C:\Test"

path he tried to save to: 'c:\\Test\\/File.xlsx'

 

as you can see, there are double '\' and '/' in each of them.

Is it supposed to be like that?
