Hello Friends, Here some tips how to create folder locally in System by Uipath the may help some of your friends , Here we go!

Create directory Activity will be the key to do this, before doing so, please make sure you (your UiPath) do have the privilege for creating folder in your C-Drive and/or D-Drive (if your C-Drive is readonly for your logged in user, the robot cannot do anything).

I wrote the following simple example which works for me, simply save them into a notepad with extension .xaml, and open with UiPath. By running it, your C-Drive and D-Drive should both be created with a folder called MasterFolderC or MasterFolderD, with 3 subfolders underneath.
