FTP Chunking & File Sizes

Hi all,


I'm fairly sure there is a simple solution to this but I can't seem to find it. I'm trying to transfer files from an FTP site into sharepoint.


I have a flow that is triggered, gets the file/folder metadata (the files are .zip), gets the file content (fails here due to timeout) and then tries to create the file in a library in SharePoint.


I believe the issue with the "get content" timeout failure is likely related to the file size (around 300MB).


I see in the flow documentation for the FTP connector that this can be circumvented by enabling chunking in the action menu.


I cannot find that setting anywhere.


Can someone point me in the right direction?

Re: FTP Chunking & File Sizes

Unfortunately, MS Flow currently seems to have such a limit. The size of the file cannot exceed 50mb.


If you want to expand the file size limit, you could vote for this idea below:
