Unzip limitations



I am using a flow that unarchives a file but run into limits of 100files in this archive. We can not find where to increase this value in the administrator interface. Can someone point me where to increase it if posible. Or is this a hard set limit that cannot be increased?

Re: Unzip limitations

Hi @stacker,


Could you share screenshots and Run details of your Flow configuration?

Are you using OneDrive- Extract archive to folder action?

At the moment, I have not found the relevant documentation to indicate that there is indeed a limit on the number of files.

In the OneDrive connector related documentation, only Find files in folder action has the maximum number of files, and Extract archive to folder action is not mentioned.

I am wondering if it will be the impact of other action restrictions.

Please provide more details.

In addition to more details of restrictions on Flow, please refer to link:


Best Regards,

Re: Unzip limitations

I have this exact same issue.


Have you had any luck in finding a solution or if these are hard limits or can be increased somewhere?
