OneDrive for Business - Delete files in folder if they are more than 50

Hello,
 
I am currently using the following Powershell script:
dir "PATH" | ? {!$_.psiscontainer} | sort LastWriteTime -desc | select -skip(50) | del

The script makes sure that I keep the newest 50 files in one folder. As soon as there are more than 50 files, the oldest ones should be deleted.

 

How can I implement this in Microsoft Flow? Can I also use Powershell commands in Flow?

 

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous ,

It seems that you would like to keep the newest 50 files in one folder. And delete the older ones.

I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

There is no function to sort the files by created time in the flow.

Here is a similar idea with your case, you can vote the idea here:
