Move files from one Dropbox folder to another

Hi all!

 

I have created a flow to send several attachments from a Dropbox folder by email and I would like to add a last step that would be to move (cut and paste) the sent files (which are all into the folder) to another Dropbox folder,

Hi @Alex_Reig 

Do you want to move the files in the selected folder in List files in Folder?

If yes, the id in Get file content 2 action and Delete file action both select from List files in Folder action.

If you use the "Copy file" action on dropbox, then you only need the URL to a given dropbox item to place in the field named "Source URL" ... DropBox URLs that have dl=0 in the query (everything after the ? in a URL) will link to the page for the given file or folder, if you change that to dl=1, then it becomes a download link!

 

There may still be size limits that you need to deal with, but this should help you handle basic file operations.

 

I've been using it with G-Drive for a year now (not the DB connector) and have been most satisfied with the results. Whilst this in and of itself isn't necessarily a solution, hopefully it can help you get a bit further along with managing this.

Hi @Alex_Reig 

You can take a try to create the files in another folder, then delete the files in the source folder.

Please refer to the screenshots below:

Save and test.

After flow runs, the files in Documents will be moved to Copy folder.

Hi @eliotcole 🙂

 

The problem is that not always are going to be the same files but the only things that will be always de same is the input and the output folders so I need to say to the flow to detect all the files in the folder and cut / paste them to another folder.

Hi @v-LilyW-msft 🙂

 

Thank you for the answer,

 

I did what you said but it didn't worked; it could be that in any part of the second part of the flow I especified where are the original files?
