OneDrive: List file in folder action get only 1000 items max, Why?



My objetive is copy all items of a folder (subfolders included) from Personal OneDrive to OneDrive for Business.


I’m going to start by counting the number of folders/files in my Flow using List file in folder action and my surprise is that returns 1000 items max, despite exceeding 20000 items.


Someone know how resolve it?

Hi @ PLVaquera,


I have made  a test on my side, and there is indeed a situation where you mentioned only returning 1000 items max, as below:



I am very excited that you can use flow action to do such interesting thing, but I am sorry that flow may have such limit currently.


If you want to extend the functionality of List file in folder action that you mentioned to be supported in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
