Copy File using path with OneDrive for Business works once but not the second time

I have a strange issue with a "OneDrive for Business, When a file is created" flow


I want to copy the newly created file into 2 different directories

1 - working - with different FileName

2 - archive - same filename 


Directory and file structure is 

Source:  /1F_PGEventAutomator/I_001_Events/xxxx_2018-01-20.xlsx

Working: /1F_PGEventAutomator/Z_00_EventAutomator/xxxx.xlsx

Archive: /1F_PGEventAutomator/Y_90_Archive/xxxx_2018-01-20.xlsx


The first step works, the second one fails despite working in the past.



{ "error": { "message": "{\r\n \"path\": \"forward-request\",\r\n \"source\": \"forward-request\",\r\n \"message\": \"The request was aborted: The request was canceled.\",\r\n \"reason\": \"Timeout\"\r\n}" } }



Step Copy succeedingStep Copy succeeding


Copy step failingCopy step failing



Any ideas how to overcome and why it is happening?

Is the same filename the issue?

Hi @ErichH,


Could you please share a screenshot of your error message?


The error message told that your "Copy file to Archive" action was aborted and cancelled. I think this issue is related to time out, you could consider take a try to simplify your flow and check if the issue is solved.


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:13.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:14.JPG
