Backup a sharepoint list to OneDrive.



I have a list on sharepoint that is used by many users and I would like to create an automation to backup that list everyday, at night, to a folder in my OneDrive.


Can you please help me do that?


Thank you.

Hi @RLeite , 

Sure - you'll probably want to use Excel, so, create an Excel spreadsheet with a named Table in it, that will hold all the columns you want. Store that in your OneDrive.

Then, the flow will be pretty simple!  Schedule, get all items, (do something*), add a row (iterate through), done!

* = Do you want to save a new copy each day, or overwrite the previous one? The below is just showing how to populate a single existing Excel file. We'd want to take a copy first and populate a new one if that were the need.

I would like to create a new file everty time the automation runs.

What should I use after the RECURRENCE and the GET ITEMS?


Thank you.
