Flow Experts! Help with PDF conversion & create file step in Microsoft Flow

Hi all, as the title describes I have a flow to that is converting from word to pdf in OneDrive. The trigger for the flow is when a file is created or modified in my selected sharepoint library. The final step of said flow is that I have a create new file step to recreate the PDF in the original sharepoint library from OneDrive. (See attached picture and read the link below to get a better idea of how this is working). 

 

I followed this post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Create-flow-that-turns-word-doc-into-pdf... 

 

Everything in the flow works fine, just one detail I have questions about. My final step is create file in a sharepoint library but the problem is if I go an edit the original word doc that is being converted and run the flow again using the same document instead of creating a new file at the end each time it does the whole conversion and then overwrites the final file created by the last step. 

 

That is to say, if you run the flow over and over again triggered by editing the same document the converted PDF and final file created in my Sharepoint library is just continuously overwritten which is not what I'm expecting as surely the 'create a file' should create a new instance of said file on each run and not overwrite a previous instance? 

 

Is there a way to create a new instance of a file on each run - easily

 

Thanks for reading
