File PDF copied empty from one SharePoint folder to another

I'm using a flow that triggers when a new file is created on a SharePoint library.

I copy this file to another library in SharePoint but I´ve had some issues with certain files that are copied as empty.

Any ideas?

Hi @_jesan_,


I did the test on my side, the file copied to another library is complete, and there is no problem you mentioned.

This is the Flow I created:


Please take a try again and let me know if issue still exists.

Thanks for your reply, I'm using the same method that you, but seems like the SharePoint folder is doing this.

When a user uploads a file, the file is seen in other computer or in the browser as empty and the flow take it as it is. I'm not sure if it's cause the flow trigger inmediately when the user upload it and affects this or it's a problem with the SharePoint site. It's weird cause this is an error that doesn't happen with all files.
