WHen a file is added flow troubles

I am using the "When a file is added/modified" flow.  First i connect to a remote SFTP server.  THe flow will check when new files are added and copy the files and content to my onedrive.  


There are 3 files on the SFTP server that are named the same, but the date is appended to them (every night).


This flow is working for all but 1 file.  Every day it misses the same file, but copies all others that are added to the drive.  I'm not sure why this would work for all files but one.


Any ideas?


Here is my flow


Thank you in advance

Hi @  m_weiss,



Could you please share more details about your flow?

Could you please share more details about the file which wouldn't work in the flow?

Please check if you have opened the file or the file is locked when the flow runs.


The flow link that you provided couldn't be opened,please provide an accessable flow link and more details so we could provide a proper workaround for you.

thanks for your questions.


i recently read that there is a size limitation on the file size that can be copied and I belive that this is why the files aren't being moved.  It appers the current limitation is 50mb.
