File System connector: Delete Files

Hi I'm having trouble Deleting files with the File System connector
The error is:
status: 400,
message:The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path 'C:\\Users\\XXX01\\Uploads/Test-Upload.txt' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: 38ead3a5-06d0-45e0-9808-3bc2298a27c2

I'm using the Path to identify the file but this gives /filename.txt which presumably causes the error. I've tried all of the other options I can think of. Any advice?Thanks

Hi @BillYoung-arm ,


Could you share a screenshot of the Flow configuration?

According to the prompt, the Delete file action needs File id instead of the File path.

Please provide more details and we would provide a proper workaround for you.
