Drop a File to a Synced OneDrive 4 Business, or SP, folder; Trigger for a Modified File Doesn't Fire

Drag a file from your file system onto the Synced Folder for OneDrive for Business (or SP), then the Trigger that is suppsoed to indicate a file has changed does **not** fire.  Do the same action for a folder shown in the browser version of OneDrive for Business and the trigger does fire.

 

I believe I know the root cause. Lalit Pandey (Engineer - Microsoft Business Intelligence) and I worked on this together and we identified the root cause. 

 

1. When you drop a file on the file system the last modified date is the same as the date of the original file.  (So it might be May 1, 2010)

 

2. When you drop a file on the browser the last modified date is "now." the current date and time, and this causes the trigger (WHen a file is modified) to fire.

 

This means that if you have a flow that is triggered by the file being dropped on the browser, it works, but by the file being dropped on the file explore (Windows) or Finder (Mac) it doesn;t work.

 

This is quite distressing for a user.
