Hi @Terry25,

You can use 'Data Extraction' activity to create and export files automatically on SFTP. If you don't have access to SFTP then there is one a way to access the exported file, which is to send it to yourself as an attachment of an email delivery(if file doesn't contain sensitive data). It is always better and best practice to have an SFTP access if you want to access files, and avoid accessing files over email.

Hi Terry,

I understand that your files you want to load is big in size, otherwise you will be attached to your email.

 

Your question depends on your work environment.
It is more simple when you are 'on premise', your IT support and you control the environment.
If you are in cloud, you have to go through an SFTP

 

'on premise' basic solution, commonly your Adobe Campaign server can access to a shared directory.

 

The idea is to share and map your computer.

 

On your computer folder, where you see you hard drive.
On Windows :
You can right click and add network location.
You do the same on Adobe Campaign Server.

 

Then in Adobe Campaign workflow, you can add folder you want to deposit your files \\shareFolder\specificFolder

Hello @Terry25 ,

 

The only way i see is to add the Delivery after your data extraction activity. That way you will have the daily updated file pushed ton your emails.

 

There is no direct way to drop file on your Hard drive.
