Can I make a "When a File is Created" File System action scan subfolders?

I need new files created in a very wide subfolder archive to trigger a flow.  The "When a File is Created" only gets the top folder files.  Any tricks for this?

 

Thanks.

This isn't possible using the File System connector for On-premises files.  The documentation is clear:

"If it is required to trigger on subfolders, multiple triggers should be created."

Hmm, well, this would require a couple of thousand.  Looks like this function is out!
