How to overwrite existing file with same name?

Hi all -


I've created this flow which does the following:


1) When a PowerPoint slide in a SharePoint folder is created or modified (trigger)

2) Move file to folder in OneDrive

3) Once in OneDrive, use Convert file from PPT to JPG

4) Save in a seperate SharePoint folder (which connects to a Power BI report of mine)




Everything worked fine - until I tried editing a slide again, which gave me this error: "A file with the name Shared Documents/xyz/Internal Dashboard/Anayltics Update (JPG)/xyz.jpg already exists."


How do I make it overwrite with the same name as an update?

Hi @Rzgazaryan 


You can got into the settings of the create file action for SharePoint via the ellipses ... and turn off chunking.
