Hi all,

I have 2 folders let say test 1 and test2.
How to create an automatic flow wherein whenever a file is uploaded in test1 folder it should get copied and pasted into test2 folder.
How can i achieve this?

The thing is - I am trying to make a flow automatic like whenever a file is uploaded in test1 folder it gets copied to another folder test2.

 

this flow is essentially doing the same thing copying files from one folder to another folder, until unless I'm completing misunderstood your scenario.

There is already a template available for this in Power Automate.

You can use "Copy files from one SharePoint Online account or folder to another folder" template to achieve your goal.

The above picture is copying files from one folder to another.

Does both the folders exists in same document library?

This is just warning. It shouldn't be a problem. It is fine till you are copying file from one folder to another folder and not to the same folder which result in infinite loop.
