# Storing exports on disk

Exports can easily be stored on any filesystem that Laravel supports.

# Default disk

public function storeExcel() 
{
    // Store on default disk
    Excel::store(new InvoicesExport(2018), 'invoices.xlsx');
}

# Custom disks

public function storeExcel() 
{
    // Store on a different disk (e.g. s3)
    Excel::store(new InvoicesExport(2018), 'invoices.xlsx', 's3');
    
    // Store on a different disk with a defined writer type. 
    Excel::store(new InvoicesExport(2018), 'invoices.xlsx', 's3', Excel::XLSX);
}

# Disk options

If you want to pass some options to the disk, pass them to Excel::store() as the fifth parameter.

public function storeExcel() 
{
    Excel::store(new InvoicesExport(2018), 'invoices.xlsx', 's3', null, [
        'visibility' => 'private',
    ]);
}

Laravel has a shortcut for private files:

public function storeExcel() 
{
    Excel::store(new InvoicesExport(2018), 'invoices.xlsx', 's3', null, 'private');
}
