UIPath Studio X - Storage : Sharepoint vs Shared Drive

Dear Team,

I am trying to populate below steps and I would like to know which storage [sharepoint or shared-drive] will have a better performance in running the bot.
Solution is to be built on UIPath Studio X.

Steps are as follows:

Around 150 - 200 excel files will be dropped on a specific folder by the Users [more than 5 users]

  1. Bot will extract the excel filenames,
  2. Bot extracts data on each file
  3. Bot populate data oh a browser.
  4. When data is saved on browser, there is a unique ID created.
  5. Bot extracts Unique ID and save it in the file.
  6. Bot saves file on output folder.

Which storage do you recommend to share the files between the bot and the Users?

Hello All,

Can you please help as I am still stuck on this one.

Thanks with Regards,


StudioX does not have “native activities” for iterating through SharePoint files yet (they will be coming in the near future). This means you’ll like find it much easier to work with a Shared Drive as you can use built in activities such as “For Each File in Folder”.

Thank you for the help Andrew. Much appreciated.
