Onedrive Business to Sharepoint : Copy (Create) File from subfolders when created


I have created test this flow from the template "Copy files between OneDrive for Business and SharePoint", which actually appears to Create the file anew, not copy it, which is fine. When I drag files into the OneDrive for Business and wait, the flow does "check" but finds no new data. When I run a Test using the data in OneDrive, it selects one file only, when I expect it to process all of the files. When I run the test where I perform the trigger action myself, all of the files are processed. In my production flows, I am using this template with conditions specifying that the file name contains certain text then create it in a specific folder, but thought I would test it in a simple form in case my conditions were affecting the flow processing, but it appears that they are not. Is there a problem that I am not seeing causing them to not process?

Hi @JSeth ,


Could you please try to recreate the connection of your onedrive 'When a file is created' flow step? Try again and see  it works.

Hi @JSeth ,


How do you “drag” files into the OneDrive for Business?


What does “the flow does check but finds no new data” mean?


I have set up the flow from the template “Copy files between OneDrive for Business and SharePoint”. Whenever I create or upload a new file, the flow triggered and the file copied to SharePoint library successfully.


Could you share more on the flow run details?


Best regards,
