Move file, putting files in recycle bin?

I have a flow which is batch moving files based on an excel sheet table.

 

What I have noticed is that it is moving the file correctly into the new folder but then it is also putting a deleted file in the recycle bin (I assume the original). 

 

Is this expected behaviour?

Re: Move file, putting files in recycle bin?

Hi @digitech ,

 

Could you share the details of the Flow configuration?

If you are using Move file action, I have tested it on my side, there is indeed an operation to delete the file. This is normal behavior and does not affect subsequent operations.

You could understand that this action is a step of adding a Delete file action based on Copy file action, so you will see this file in the recycle bin.

I hope this helps your understanding.
