HELP :( Automate action broken! - Get file content / with path issue??

Hi all
is there an issue with the Get file content  or Get file content by path?
A previously working flow now is failing by saying the file not found.
I know its there as i have checked!
i have even copied to another folder and still it says no file found 😞
this has stopped right at a time critical time for me 😞

Any one know why?

Gary

thanks for the response

The file has not been deleted etc as I only access that folder.

my first action was to carry out what you suggested and it still did not work.

i found that for some reason the connector just stopped working.. once the connector restored then it worked 😞

If the file is still there but Flow is not finding it, it's possible that the file was copied and the original was deleted.  So the file would look the same to you, but it would have a different ID, so Automate would not be able to find it.

 

I'd go back to your Get file content action and reset it.  Select a different library, different file, and then reset it back to the library and file that you want.
