Re-install without losing flows on PAD?

I'm trying to activate Machine runtime however it seems to require a re-install but i already have many long flows, is there a way to either install machine runtime without a re-install or is there a way to keep my flows and re-install it. My concern is because of how complicated it is to actually share and transfer flows that when I delete the PAD app will take the flows with it.

 

Thanks.

Hi @BkingstonGTI ,

 

All your desktop flow are generally saved to your Microsoft account. You can login to flow.microsoft.com and under desktop flows it should show you all of your desktop flows. So even if you uninstall and re-install your Power Automate desktop, the flows should still be there.

 

Just to make sure that your desktop flows are properly saved and accessible after re-install, you can use another machine to login to Power Automate desktop and check if all your flows are available in that machine's PAD.

 

Hope this helps 🙂
