FTP to Onedrive help

Hey all,


I am using the FTP to OneDrive template and it is definitely working as intended.
Alas I need to make it be bit smarter as well as overcome the 50mb limit. 
I cant seem to get the chunking option to appear or does it actually show up? 

following this guide

  • FTP triggers don't support chunking. When requesting file content, triggers select only files that are 50 MB or smaller. To get files larger than 50 MB, follow this pattern:

    • Use an FTP trigger that returns file properties, such as When a file is added or modified (properties only).

    • Follow the trigger with the FTP Get file content action, which reads the complete file and implicitly uses chunking.


Ideally the flow would remove the files after transferring to OneDrive. I cant seem to wrap my head around when in the flow the ftp delete should occur or how to fill out the options.  
I am still brand new to Automation so if I missed a better template or a guide let me know.

You should just have to change the trigger to the action "When a file is added or modified (properties only)." then get have a follow up action "Get file content" to get this to work. I would recommend setting up your flow with those actions and it should work.

Thanks Alex: 
So I may need some clarification.
The base template has two steps [when a file is modified ] > [create file]
[when a file is modified ] > [get file content] >[create file]
I set the above flow up and when you drop a large file into the monitored folder it just ignores it.

Is this how I configure the get file content dynamic trigger?
