Updating files on another drive when renaming and delting files

I have configured a flow that is creating a PDF on another drive, when a file is updated or created on a main drive in docx. Now I want to delete and rename these PDF's if the main documents are deleted or renamed.


It looks like this:


Her are my documents maintained:

/documents/My main documents/subfolder 1/doc1.docx

/documents/My main documents/subfolder 2/doc3.docx


These documents are auto generated on behalf of the main documents
/documents/My PDF documents/subfolder 1/doc1.pdf

/documents/My PDF documents/subfolder 2/doc3.pdf

Now i want to add a flow when a document is renamed (If i rename it how, it will generate a new PDF on the other drive with the new filename, and keep the old document with the old filename) or deleted. 


How is that possible ?


Thanks very much in advance 🙂
