First Automate - Template - Copy file from pc to sharepoint

Hey Folks,    I hope all is well with everyone.  There is at least one thing positive about having to stay inside,  I am learning a bit about Automate.  So far I have been able to muddle through, but I am having a small problem for which I am not seeing the correct solution.

 

I am using the template (Copy New Files from PC to Sharepoint).  It seems and really is pretty stright forward.  My issue is with gaining access to the folder on the PC.   Since I am not able to figure out how to post a screen shot in this forum.  I will attempt to descibe the issue in writting.

 

When creating the connector, I am using a local user name and password to access the system file.   I have tried this in many ways,  username/password,   .\username/password,  machinename\username and password.   all of these ways fail at the first trigger of the flow.  the error is The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '' exists on your file system.".   I have also tried using my microsoft username and paassward.  same results. 

 

I'm sure that this is probably an easy fix.  Im just not seeing it.  Any suggestions, comments, or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
