Downloading Zip Files from Email to OneDrive

Hello all,


I am trying to download zip attachments from emails into OneDrive.

My flow downloads the zipped folder, but when I try to extract the zip file on my desktop I get an error saying the zipped file is empty.

The file sizes are larger than expected in File Explorer, so some additional data must be added somewhere.

I can extract the data using the extract file function in Power Automate, but I need to keep it in a zip for long-term storage purposes.


I am saving the data using the OneDrive for Business "Create a File" function, with the File Name being the Attachment Name and the File Contents being Attachment Content.


Thanks for anyone's suggestions!
