Power Automate ‘get files (properties only)’ output value empty


I want to return the files within a subfolder with the ‘get files (properties only)’ action.

The Flow runs successful, but the output value returns empty in some cases. ("value":[])

The library has about 28500 files within 15 folder. In each folder there is at least one file

  • About 9 return a result
  • About 6 show empty

I’m starting the Flow manually and only use that one action. The library and the restriction for the folders were done manually with the action UI.

When using the action ‘list folders’ all folders appear.

In Addition

Using the Graph API i can't finde the items.

I used this to get the drive-id

GET /sites/{site}:/drives  (/sites/

and than with the dirve-id from the pevious step i wannted to get the items

GET /drives/{drive-id}/root:/{item-path}  (/drives/{drive-id}/root:/foldername


As a reosuld I only get 

"code": "itemNotFound",
"message": "The resource could not be found."

 In another tennant it worked, using the same commands.
