Unable to Copy File WITH metadata (was working previously?)

I know this has worked previously, but I cannot get the Copy File action to work with Metadata.


Everything completes successfully, but the file in the second library has none of the entered metadata.


it is from one library to another in the same site, both with the exact same content type, nothing fancy.


Below is the output of a successful run:

Hi @Brentless,


Could you please explain more about the metadata that you mentioned?

What is contained in the metadata that you mentioned?


If you copy a file to a new path, it is mean create a new file the same as another file, however, the new file would have it's own create or modify time.


If the create or modify time is contained in the metadata that you mentioned, I afraid that you couldn't achieve it to copy the metadata that you mentioned.


Best regards,
