Quick Questions:

I want to know, where this files are actually stored?

Which Storage it is using?

Will it store the file in Blob format? Or it has centralized place where all of these files are stored?

Can I download uploaded files in OOTB manner without using any code?

Hi @Dhruvin,

 

The files behind the scenes are stored in Azure Blob Storage. You won't have access to the storage account directly and must download the files using the Dataverse Web API. If you're using a Canvas App, the Attachment control on a form can be used to download the file. Model Driven Apps also will have a built in file control on a form to download files.
