Unable to connect to any local file using File System Connector and On-Prem Data Gateway

Hi all,

 

I've been trying to connect to my Local C:\ using an On-Prem Data gateway and the File System connector "Create File". However, when I try to get to the files, it gives me the following message:Untitled2.png

The on-prem gateway is configured as shown below:

 

On-prem:

On the DATA tab in power automate:Untitled3.png

 

When configuring the File System connection I made sure I used the DOMAIN\username format. The password used, is the one I use to unlock my screen on my local laptop, aka - local account password (Not my AzureAD credentials).

 Lastly, the file system connector shows no problem either:

I checked the connector, it says "C:\WINDOWS\ServiceProfiles\PBIEgwService\Documents\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors" but also "Folder not found"3.png
