Hi @Saharc,


When using the action Copy file, we are asked to specify a file for the field "File to copy" using a valid File Identifier. It is either a dynamic content “File identifier” from the previous trigger/action, or a specific file that you selected from the SharePoint library.


Please take a try with it on your side.
