Creating and APP with access to my local files

Hi there, 

 

Looking for an advice here:

 

Is possible to build an app but instead of having all the files in the cloud, I would like to see/open my PDF documents, word or excel documents saved in my local folder or better in my local server?

 

If this is possible could someone point me in the right direction?

 

Many thanks

I have not used this connector but it appears there is a create file function and a get file code contents action.  Suggest you start by experimenting with these actions.  Awhile back when I saw this connector recommended on another similar post it got the person to a solution.

I would recommend you check out the File System connector for PowerApps.

Thank you very much for your prompt response,

Would you mind to answer this?

 

This is my situation, I only need to save files in my server, and have the user the choice to open the file via hyperlink. Will this connector suit my needs?

 

thank you kindly
