get files (properties only) takes nothing

i am trying to make a flow, that copies files from one folder to another and then delete from the first. Or moves them, doesnt matter.

i made it as i understand and it had no mistakes, but does nothing. I watched couple of videos and the solution they use is just exactly the same exept it works and do things!

please help



i tried a bit different ways, also i tried to use the "get files properties" insted of "get files (properties only)" - same result/

at least tell, if i get the files properties

i need the working method more, but what i want is to understand 🙂

Not a good answer, but like you, I see nothing wrong with your flow. I even rebuilt it on my side EXACTLY using your steps and it works perfectly.  There has to be something really small somewhere that is causing your issue. 

So since your flow doesn't even get into the loop, can you just confirm something? In your run just before the Apply to Each, click the download from your Get Files (properties only). Just to see if you are getting any results...that way we can determine if that is the issue?

I have the same situation.

What I have investigated:

from one SharePoint site it works (flow see the folder content).

from another doesn't work - same problem like yours.

Working case:



Not working case.


- both pictures from one flow.

- same folder content (which I'm trying to extract) on the each SharePoint site.


For now - I do not understand why?

Can some one help?
