Hi @Hendkandeel 

 

Thank you very much for posting.

 

Accordingly to your requirement, you would like to copy specific file in OneDrive to another. If that’s the case, it’s impossible currently. The ‘copy file’ action can’t be applied across multiple accounts. This is by design.

 

But we do have related workaround for this. We can use ‘create file’ to create new files between different accounts. However, the new created files’ owner will become to the person who runs this flow. Please kindly consider and determine.

 

If you are using OneDrive account:

For OneDrive for business account:

Thanks
