Transfering files from a Personal One Drive to a One Drive for business account

I was trying to use Flow to transfer the files from my personal account to the One Drive account provided by my college. I fail at doing so. Can anyone help me to build the flow properly? Here is a picture of what I was doing

 

 

Update: Now I´m using a template but it doesn't look like it's doing anything (I don't see the files in the Business acc). I found a template that allow you to transfer from a Personal account to a Business account of One Drive. Here is the link to the template: https://us.flow.microsoft.com/es-es/galleries/public/templates/75d4a37dec744681abd57d56a8398f09/copi...

You can search for it by this name: Copy files from One Drive for Business when they're added to One Drive.

 

Please, let me understand what I'm doing wrong. As I said, I want to copy the files from one account to another different one, wiithout downloading and uploading againt because I have a bad Internet conecction

Re: Transfering files from a Personal One Drive to a One Drive for business account

Hi @joser1813,

 

Do you want to transfer existing files from OneDrive for Personal to OneDrive for business?

Maybe you can try this workaround:

    1.Set up manual triggers, using the OneDrive--List files in folder action to list all files from the root directory.

    2.Then use Get file content to get the file content and then create the file in OneDrive for Business.

    3.Because the previous List files in folder action will also list the subfolder, so add a Condition, if the listed items are folders, do not create a file.

However, such a method can only transfer all the files inside to another account, but will not retain the original directory structure.

As for the template you used but did not create a file, I did a test on my side and did not make any changes to the template. It can create files normally.

Could you provide the configuration for using this template?

Here are the results of my test:

Barry
