Move File: The destination path cannot be the same as the source object itself

I've built a flow where I want to move folders containing files into a folder named "Sent" (also in the same document folder).

The flow appears to run and moves the folders and files however it errors with this message:

The destination path cannot be the same as the source object itself.
clientRequestId: 491bf6c2-91e1-4406-8e9a-163f7977b87f
serviceRequestId: 491bf6c2-91e1-4406-8e9a-163f7977b87f



I realise the alternative is to have the "Sent" folder in the parent to the "Skypark Hub" folder however would prefer to get it working as above if possible.


I tried replacing the Move File action with the Copy File action however that also copied the "Sent" folder to the "Sent" folder made the flow fail - wasn't sure how to exclude the "Sent" folder from this action?
