Creating a folder on a local network drive using a Nintex workflow in SharePoint

I am currently using an InfoPath form with a Nintex workflow to create folders in a separate library on SharePoint.  Is it possible to use a Nintex workflow to create a folder outside of SharePoint (e.g. - on a local network drive or a user's hard drive)?  Similarly, is it possible to use a Nintex workflow to create a folder in ProjectWise?

 

In case it is relevant, the software is:

 

SharePoint 2010

InfoPath 2010

Nintex Workflow 2010

Windows 7 Enterprise

Bentley ProjectWise V8i (SELECTseries 4)

Re: Creating a folder on a local network drive using a Nintex workflow in SharePoint

Hi William, Unfortunately we don't have an OOB action that create folders or files on local drive. As Nintex workflow product work within the context of SharePoint. So it will not be able to create folders in ProjectWise product. Thanks,

Re: Creating a folder on a local network drive using a Nintex workflow in SharePoint

I think it would be good to have an option to 'create folder structure' in the File-Share/Network-drive. This is because, in few instances workflows are required to automatically create folders and then copy files to these locations dynamically. I'm sure this is possible through Powershell-Addins to Nintex Workflows, however, a default action would make things easier.
