A general error occurred setting privileges the file provided: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.\r\n


An error occurs with the flow and I don't understand why.

All the files have different names. The problem occurs randomly for some files during the action 'Set PDF document privilege'.

For example, 1/25 files have the error and because of that the flow take 20 min while it's suppose to take less then 5 min.
