Onedrive for Business Move or Rename deletes files if no change occured

Dear Flow-Team, 

 

the Onedrive for business action "Rename or Move File" deletes the file if the action is triggered without a change in the filename or path. The file is being moved to the trash bin of the respective onedrive and the flow itself fails because "The resource could not be found."

 

Let me know if you need any screenshots or further information. 

 

Best Regards, 

Alex

Hi @asp ,

 

Yes, as you said, if you enter the same file path in the File column and the Destination file path column, the flow would run failed with an error message.

 

Why are you enter the same file path in the File column and the Destination file path column, the "Move or rename a file" action is used to move or rename a file, you shouldn't use this action to enter the same file path in the File column and the Destination file path column.

 

Please don't enter the same file path in the File column and the Destination file path column,since it will not help.

And the microsoft flow product team may add a check on the action to stop the operation.

 

Best regards,

Alice
