We can create files and folder using node js by using fs.Access() and its promise-base fsPromises.access() counter part) to know whether the folder exists and also if Node.js can access it with permissions 

There are methods in file system module to create new files, they are:

  • fs.appendFile()
  • fs.writeFile()

To create a new folder , we can use fs.mkdir() or fs.mkdirSync or fsPromises.mkdir() .
