Creating an Archive System for Word Docs and PDFs in SharePoint

Hi, I have been playing around with Power Automate and cannot create a solution for my problem. I have outlined my aims and issue below:


I need to create a system in SharePoint documents which essentially links 2 folders (folder A and B). Folder A holds word documents, and folder B holds PDFs of the word documents. I want a new PDF to be created in folder B when a word document in folder A is created or edited. (NOTE: I have created a Power Automate which creates a new PDF when a Word document is created, or edited, but this only saves once and does not repeat the process. I unfortunately have not been able to fix this).


I would like both the old PDF and the old Word document to be saved into separate archive files, and the newly saved documents should remain in folder A and folder B. The new save should be saved with a new revision increment, showing it is the most recent edit. This does not necessarily have to be organised instantly (although this would be beneficial), so if easier I would be happy to have this as a scheduled process.


Any insight into my issues would be much appreciated! 


Thanks for your time 🙂
