Powerapp and File system connector - Can you display file from on premise locations (like c:\)

I have a PowerApp and I would like to display the contents of a folder that is shared on premise. I would like the user to be able to click on the file name (in my powerapp) and open the file. I have an On Premise Data Gateway installed with both the SQL and file connector working. Can you display file from on premise locations (like c:\)

Any help would be great.

No, we need the person to open the Powerapp, see the directory listing of c:\ (that is on premise) and be able to click on the file listing and it displays the file. Similar to the PDF viewer but from an on premise directory location.
