get files (properties only) doesn't get all the files in folders

Dear fellow Users,

 

I have a question regarding using Get Files (properties only). The flow i created;

Get Files (properties only) >> (apply to each) add row into table.  I basically create a list of available files in folders.

 

But for some reason it only picks up like a 100 files or something. always the same files, always the same path.

But i didn't limited the "Get Files (properties only)" function to a specific folder. The flow picks up all folders and sub folders. But only the files in some random folder. but not all the files in al folders. 

 

please help!

Hi there,

 

when getting items/files from a list or library, it will only get the first 100. This is a limit in Flow. You can activate a feature called "pagination" in some cases in the action settings to retrieve more than 100 files, but even in this case, there is a limit. Pagination is available only for lists as far as I am aware.

 

Hope this helps,
