OneDrive - Delete Files/Folders older than x days

Hi,

 

As the name implies, I'm looking for a flow that will delete files/folders that are older than 7 days.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: OneDrive - Delete Files/Folders older than x days

Hi @lewisdhbrooks ,

According to your description, you want to delete files/folders that are older than 7 days in OneDrive via MS Flow.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

The expression of Compose is: addDays(body('Get_file_metadata')?['LastModified'],7,'yyyy-MM-dd'), add 7 days on the last modified date.

The expression of Condition is: greaterOrEquals(outputs('Compose'),utcNow('yyyy-MM-dd')), judge whether the files are older than 7 days.

@v-zhos-msft 

I get this error due to being a folder

{
"status": 400,
"message": "Resource : ID is a directory. This API works only on files",
"source": "api.connectorp.svc.ms"
}

Did you ever get this working? I'm attempting to do the same thing

 

When I run the flow I get the error:

Unable to process template language expressions for action 'Condition' at line '1' and column '2225': 'The template language function 'greaterOrEquals' expects all of its parameters to be either integer or decimal numbers. Found invalid parameter types: 'Boolean'.'.
