Hi, is there any way I can make a workflow which would take a document from SharePoint library and then save it to a shared/ local folder?
if you need to copy the document to another sharepoint library you should be able to use the "Copy to SharePoint" action. If you need to copy the file to another server you should be able to use copy.asmx webservice (see: MSDN - Copy.CopyIntoItems)
If you explain your use case, maybe a simpler workaround can be found.
