Problem Using SharePoint "Copy Link" when Trying to Copy Folder

My Flow uses the "Copy Link" from a given SharePoint folder as its input from an outside user.  While attempting to deconstruct the link and use it with the SharePoint Copy Folder action I get an error:

 

{
"status": 400,
"message": "Failed to verify the existence of source object at 'https://XXX.sharepoint.com/:f:/s/PGSiteSurveys/EtB_qxhgvIpEvg32Wp7rqYABs6MvK2oL0gG1JmccR76OHg' due to error 'The system cannot find the path specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070003)'.\r\nclientRequestId: e94779f9-19aa-4d50-9242-530ad46a84b8\r\nserviceRequestId: 74bedb9e-70dd-8000-7ced-bf3e5467cf1d"
}

Using the actual URL provided within the error, if copied as an address the proper folder opens.  Given that I only have the "Copy Link," is there another way to approach copying the folder?  (I will need to copy the folder within the same location and to an outside SharePoint site?)
 
All help is appreciated.
 
Cheers.

Not sure I understood the way you are invoking "Copy folder" action block. Are you assigning an URL as the value for "Folder to copy" input?

 

As far as I see in this action block documentation, you need the File Identifier instead

Hope it helps!
