Copy SharePoint Folder and Subfolders



It's very annoying to see a major limitation with the "when a file is created or modified trigger" in that it doesn't work for subfolders.  


I basically need to copy all files in a folder and subfolder to another document library when that file is modified or a new file is added.  It works great if I specify the folder but I unfortunately don't know the name of every subfolder.  


To get around this I had to run a manual flow that was scheduled and instead of the trigger being when a file is modified or triggered it just always copies every folder and subfolder with the copy folder trigger, but that seems like a waste to constantly move files that are not new or changed.  

Is there a better method?
