Write Binary File#

The Write Binary File node writes a file to the host machine that runs n8n.

Examples and templates

For usage examples and templates to help you get started, refer to n8n's Write Binary File integrations page.

File locations

  • If you are running n8n in Docker, your command will run on the n8n container and not the Docker host. /// * This node will look for files relative to the n8n install path. n8n recommends using absolute file paths to prevent any errors.

Node parameters#

  • File Name: this field specifies the path to which the file should be written, along with the file name.
  • Property Name: name of the binary property to which to write the data of the read file.

Node options#

Append: enable this to append to an existing file, instead of creating a new one.
