Transfer large files from SharePoint to sFTP, Get File Content times out

I have created a flow that easily transfers small files, but i am testing with a file of 100MB and 300MB but none of these are transferring.

How do we solve these?

I am getting the file content, and then i am using Create a file sFTP connector to create the file. Chunking is enabled.

But it seems - it never finishes the "Get file content" part of the flow. it times out.

Hi @Megaoctane 

As documented here, it seems maximum file size is 100MB, although some actions support chunking and some others not.

You could try to copy the file, and then get the file content, as proposed by @PieterVeenstra here: Copy large files with Power Automate (

Hope that helps!

The copy action only works for copying the file from SharePoint to SharePoint. I need to get the file content to upload it to sFTP. The Get File Content is timing out.
