the flow has a final trigger and update the item again ... it seems that the flow triggers itself . how can I prevent this from happening without removing it?

Here is the essential section from the trigger to the end, in between there is only pure query logic (I can not show everything because it is already a lot).

In the last you are updating file properties that is why it is triggering on continuously.

Add a dummy column in your doc list of type yes/no. And set dummy column default value as NO. After flow trigger,check dummy column value with condition like dummy column value is equal to false . In No block of condition use terminate action so that when condition become false, flow terminate. And in last set dummy column value as true in update action.  In this case your flow will run twice but it does not have any impact on your process.

@PowerPat 

Hide dummy column from content type and lets system fill default value during file created or modified. If you want to change user do that it will not impact your flow.

Re: Bitte helfen! den Fflow dauerhaft auslösen, "wenn eine Datei erstellt oder geändert wird (nur probertys)"

I want the flow to be triggered when the user changes something, which would not be possible with the column afterwards
