File System Connector + Gateway

My goal is to create a folder name on our file server with some field values from Sharepoint.  The concept is simple and I have been testing out the File System connector and have a gateway setup.  The strange thing is it seems to create files, copy, etc. however it can't create folders.  It seems like you can have a folder created if you create a file than you have a useless file that you need to clean up.  Is anyone aware of simply how to create a folder on a on-prem file server using flow?

Hi @Dudditz ,

You purpose is to create a folder vai File System Connector with some field values from Sharepoint.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.

Here I used the value from a list item as the folder name.

However you can't only create a empty folder via File System Connector, you need use the 'create file' action, at the sametime create a new folder.

As the picture shown: the 'D:\myshare' is the Root Folder.
