Hi @mnikam,


The “Shared with me” view lets you see the files that others shared with you, but they are just the view of the files of sharers’ folder. If you want to copy the file in “Shared with me” view, you need to copy the file from the folder of file owner.


More details about “Shared with me” in OneDrive for business, please check the following article:

Hi @v-xida-msft,


Thank you for the reply. I understand it is a view. But i was wondering if there is way to make a copy of the file into my OneDrive using Flow. Apreciate any ideas.

Hello mnikam,


Have you found any solution to your need ?

I am interested in the solution or workaround you may have found, as I need to do something similar.


(on a regular basis, read the content of an OD4B folder shared with me, download them for archiving purpose into my own OD4B account, copy and rename the files for the next period, upload them to the external OD4B folder - for which I have got the proper access rights)



Thank you in advance.
