Copying files to Local drive

Is it possible to set up a flow so that when a new file is uploaded to a Sharepoint or Onedrive folder it is then copied on a local computer drive?

Hi,

 

Currently, there is no flow action which could create a file on a local computer directly.

 

As a workaround, you can try to configure FTP server on the computer, then sync files from a folder in OneDrive to folder on FTP server using the following flow template:

Thanks,

Wendy

 

Thanks Wendy,

Unfortuantely it is a corporate computer and policy restrictions would prevent us using an FTP server on the PC.

One Drive for Business will do what we require but that is also somewhat restricted by corporate policies.

We may need to present a case to get the restrictions lifted for specific PC's

Cheers

Chris
