Help Please! Need 2 Flows

Hello Power Community, I need help creating 2 different flows specifically for OneDrive for Business. The flows are as follows:

Flow1

When a new folder is created or modified in a specified folder,.... a copy of the folder that was created or modified and its contents.... is made in another specified folder. So in essence, when someone creates a folder, a copy is created in another folder, and its contents synced

*Note: Not a file, a folder.

 

Flow2

Automate Backup OneDrive for Business to Dropbox and sync. I would like for Dropbox to be the backup for OneDrive for Business

Flow 1 - The SharePoint Online Flow Connector has a When a file is created or modified in a folder trigger, and the Copy Folder action. Also, if you want to perform tasks at the Folder level, you can utilize the SharePoint API:

Flow 2 - There is a template for this exact scenario: 

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.

Hi @SKALS ,

 

As far as I know, the action in OneDrive for Business cannot monitor whether the content in the specified Folder has changed and copy the entire folder.

 

I'm afraid there is no suitable way to fulfill your needs at present.

Flow 2: the template that is available is for OneDrive only, not OneDrive for Business  😣

As far as Flow1, i would need to try it out and report back. Thanks for the reply though.
