Create subfolders without overwriting the previous ones

I'm trying to create subfolders in a sharepoint list like this.

I want to be able to create subfolders without overwriting all the information.
So far, I only manage to overwrite everything from folder 1 to folder B.

Can you help me? Thank you very much.

 

Folder 1 ----> Folder A---> Folder B

At the moment, whenever I find them, I overwrite them and I lose all the information that I already have.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

Hi @elaaadani ,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

According to your description, I tried to create flow to for subfolder creation. However I couldn’t reproduce your issue. Since you didn’t mention your condition, I started flow using  ‘manually trigger a flow’ for your reference.

 

Create subfolders in a SPO list :

  1. Create a list named ‘ListSubfolder’;
  2. Add some columns and create a new record;
  3. Create flow using simple “create new folder” option;
  4. Run flow and new subfolders created, columns remain and record still there in the main list.

Are you using the “create folder” action?
