Can't see files uploaded to OneDrive for Business



I'm new to flow and I'm trying to create a simple flow that sends an email when a new file appears in a folder, with that file attached to the email.  When I try to select the folder for the trigger it gives me / root and then options for folders that don't actually exist in my Onedrive for Business. None of the folder I use are visible in the drop down menu. I've tried manually capturing the location for the folder (using the copy file location in Onedrive for Business) I'd like for the trigger but I can't seem to get it to work.


Hi @BrandonNcbSea can you please check that you have the right connection established with OneDrive? I've encountered this issue in the past where someone has accidentally connected to their OneDrive for Business instead of personal OneDrive or vice versa.


First of all ensure that you have the corret trigger selected (both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business exists) and that you have the correct connection. You can verify this by selecting the ellipsis on the trigger and checking the connection information.


If all looks good, can you please post a screenshot of your Flow to aid us with the troubleshooting.

Here are the options it gives me.

None of those folders are in my OneDrive for Business. I don't have a personal OneDrive. Only the Onedrive for Business account for work.  I confirmed I'm using the Onedrive for Business template.

Hi @BrandonNcbSea ,

Please make sure you have selected the correct connection.


I have made a test on my side, it doesn't have the issue you have mentioned.

that's not doing it.  Root still takes me to a folder that don't exist on the Onedrive for business for my account. I only have the one account.
