Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder flow

I am using flow to copy files from SharePoint to Azure blob storage. Flow is working fine but the copied files in Azure blob storage are empty(size 0). Uploading the same file manually working correctly.


File am using are in pdf and doc format. Same flow working fine for .one files and copying the files with content but not for pdf and doc.

Re: Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder flow

Hi @anshul,


How is your flow created? Could you share a screenshot of your flow?

Have you tried the flow template Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder?

Under the trigger When a file is created in a folder, please add actions to Get file metadata then Get file content. Then use the file name and file content from the previous action to create the file in Azure Blob folder.

Please take a try with it on your side. If you are still having the issue, please feel free post back.


Best regards,

Re: Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder flow

Hi @v-yamao-msft 


I have the same problem as Anshul, and tried to implement your solution. Unfortunately I am still having some problems, and want to share a screenshot of the error I get.


I am trying to upload the screenshot using the camera button, but it only gives me these options: Source, Image Description, Dimensions. Would you be able to help me with uploading a screenshot or provide me an email address where I can contact you with the screenshot and description of the problems?
