Unable to Delete files in FTP using *.*

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.

Hi Vrchandran,

 

I'm a bit confused.  Were you able to resolve your issue?

Hi Red2,

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?

Apparently power automate can not delete files when you use all inclusive file name like *.*?

That would be very surprising.
