Permission to save to hard drive?

I'm trying to make a flow which saves email attachments with specific names to our hard drive. I'm new to Power Automate but on the forum have checked that my flow is correct and the consensus appears to be that it should work. I'm just wondering if I need to do something to enable it to write to the drive? I've read about gateways and am not sure if this is something I should be doing? I've tried to create one which seemed to be successful but I can't figure out how to view it, as the help guide says I should have an option which I don't!!

Hi @Magikmissy ,

 

You could refer to this link to get more details about File system connector:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/connectors/filesystem/#create-file

If you want to create a File system connection, you need to use Gateway, you can refer to the following links for more details on configuring Gateway:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/connectors/filesystem/#create-file

In addition, there are many cases in the forum about saving attachments to the File System as a reference. Like:

Save-email-and-attachments-to-a-file-system

Tips-Save-mail-attachment-file-to-File-System

How-to-Save-Attachments-from-outlook-to-local-share-drive
