Deleting folders in OneDrive

Hi,

 

I wish to daily wipe clean the content of a onedrive account. I'm able to produce a flow that will delete all the root files but I'm unable to do the same with the folders. Is there a way to recursivly delete a folder and all it's content (files and subfolders) with a flow?

Hi @Blakendeker ,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

If you want to delete folder in OneDrive, I am afraid that it is not possible currently. Flow doesn’t have an delete folder action, besides, we cannot use “Delete file” action to delete folders.

 

Please feel free submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum, I will suggest other customers who have the same request to vote your idea as well:

So, here's a theory...let me know what you think:

  1. Map the OneDrive to a network drive
  2. Write a batch file to clear the drive.
  3. Call the batch file from a recurrence Flow.

Dangerous...but fun, right?

Keep us posted.
