FTP to Dropbox or Google Drive

Hi

My goal is to check on an ftp source, if new files were uploaded and to copy thes files to a) Google Drive or b) Dropbox.

 

I've tested the following flows:

FTP-Server an Google Drive
When a file is added or modified on an FTP server, copy it to Dropbox
Both are connection th ftp and transfering to Google Drive or Dropbox. The files are images from a webcam and it seams, as the file size is correct. But I can't open the images on my computer. It brings up the message "file could not be opened".

 

Any idea what's wrong?

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Paul

Hi @PaulS78 ,

 

Could you share a screenshot of the Flow configuration?

Note the extension of the file, and you may also need to use base64ToBinary() function to convert the file to the specified format.

Hi @PaulS78 ,

 

Have you tried using the binary() function or the Base64toBinary() function to convert file content?

To be honest, I don't have a glue how to do this.

Would you be so friendly to help me?

Txs. Files are still transferred. But now they don't even have a realistic file size. Which was before.

Hi @PaulS78 ,

 

Thank for your reply!

It seems that this function has no effect. Have you tried using the binary() function?
