Synchronize files from file share to SharePoint document library.

Hi All

 

I need some advice please. Let me start by explaining the need. 

We have an Internal data server that contains important information. This folder contains several sub folders which change from time to time. We currently backup this folder onto encrypted memory sticks (via scripts) and is used by the relevant people. We would like to move away from memory stick and use SharePoint document library instead. We would like to automate the process of synchronising changes from the local share to the SharePoint library. 

 

I have tried several solutions to get this working but im yet to find one that will copy both files and folders? I have also not been able to find or workout how to synchronise changes? 

 

I’ve tried to use the FTP, OneDrive and file system connectors but with little to no success. All i can manage to do is get the files to copy accross but not in folders? 

 

Has anyone been able to get this working? 

 

Thank for your help in advance. 

 

Regards

 

Tyrone

Hi @CHF,

 

It seems that you are trying to sync both files and folders to the destination. I am afraid that it might be not possible. We can only monitor a single folder at a time.

 

There is a similar request on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote the idea at here:
