Folks, my problem might have been solved. When I try to delete all the files in a folder using delete files with FTP connection, it throws an error File not found. In the same directory instead of using *.*, if I use exact name of the file, it of course deletes it. I migrated from WinAutomation to Power automate. Power automate uses the term delete "Files" (Note plural) in FTP, so I assumed *.* will delete all the files, or a combination of files if I user the name like, myfiles*.xlsx etc. I am stuck. Thanks.
My problem was not resolved. Using *.* to delete all files in power automate doesn't work? It works in Winautomation. But there is no more support for winautomation, so I switch to power automate. It ssems you can't delete files all files using *.*. Am I missing something?
There are two problems. One delete folder doesn't work in FTP
Delete files doesn't work in FTP
In both cases, when I use filezilla, no problem, anything and everything was deleted as directed.
Therefore it is not the problem with the FTP site itself. Certainly a problem with Power Automate. Even after 1 year nobody seems to solve this basic problem.
So now another 3 months passed. Just came here to check out anybody else having this problem. Apparently not. Anyway let me post my problem from June 13, 2021: I am unable to delete a directory using FTP connection in Power Automate. Anybody found any solution?
From my sparse knowledge of Power Automate i am pretty sure you have to read the files into an array and then run the delete command against that.
