Copy files between several folders



i have issue with copy files between several folders.


I have structure like the picture



I made flow that copy files from 04_OUTPUTS to 99_SHARED\OUTPUTS. It is OK.

I made next flow that copy files from 99_SHARED\OUTPUTS to 04_OUTPUTS\00_TEMP also when files are created or modified.


I have problem when I create or modify file in folder 04_OUTPUTS. This file will copy to 99_SHARED\OUTPUTS but also to 04_OUTPUTS\00_TEMP. I need to copy only new or changed files from SHARED folder to TEMP not files which were copy from 04_OUTPUTS without changes.

I did not find any condition for this situation.


Can you recomend me please ?

Hi @Petr_Marek,


Which connector do you use within your flow?

Could you please share a screenshot of your flows’ configuration?


I think there is something issue with the trigger in your flow. When you create a file in 04_OUTPUTS folder, your first flow would run and create the file in 99_SHARED\OUTPUTS folder, then your second flow would be triggered automatically, because a new file (copied file in first flow) is created in 99_SHARED\OUTPUTS folder. Finally, the second flow executed successfully and create the file in 04_OUTPUTS\00_TEMP folder.


Please check if there is “file modified” trigger (“When a file is modified” trigger) of the connector that you use, if it has, please consider take a try to change “When files are created or modified” trigger of your second flow into “When a file is modified” trigger.
