Moving a sharepoint folder

Hello all, 


I wonder if anyone could help. I have a fairly good knowledge of Power Automate (but I am by no means an expert) and I am struggling with writing a flow to move a SharePoint folder to Azure storage. 


The request I have received is that when a folder is created in a certain SharePoint library, after a specific period of time the folder and its contents are then moved to Azure blob storage. 


I have used the template flow to set up moving files to Azure storage, and this works perfectly.  However, I cannot seem to find a way to move folders to Azure. The folder structure is quite important as there will be a few files within each folder.


When I have attempted to write my own flow, I cannot seem to find the right trigger to start it off. I was hoping to use a trigger "when a folder is created" or something similar but I am unable to find this. 


Is there any suggestions that anyone can make to assist? Thank you so much for any advice offered.
