Does powerapps designer/studio store any data locally?

I am looking to find out if powerapps stores any local data, so that I can get that directory excluded from Antivirus scanning.

 

Thank you.

Re: Does powerapps designer/studio store any data locally?

Hi @NachoTaco2 ,

Do you want to know if the PowerApps Studio store any data locally?

 

The answer to your question is NO. PowerApps is actually a SaaS, which acts as a Cloud service. When you create, save and publish an app using PowerApps Studio, the resources within this app would be stored in your PowerApps Environment (Cloud storage), which is bind to a geographic location, e.g. US. When you create an app in an environment, that app is routed to only datacenters in that geographic location.

More details about the app resource storgae mechanism within PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/environments-overview

 

Of course, when you save an app using PowerApps Studio, you could consider save your app into your local computer as a .msapp file.

Note: There is no directory folder supported for PowerApps Studio within local computer.

Do you mean the PowerApps Studio webapp?  It does not store any data locally.  The PowerApps acts only as a nice looking front-end from which to view/input data.
