Copy a Folder in OneDrive

Hi there,

I want to create a common folder structure for each customer by just copying a Sample folder with its subfolders to a new Path (renaming the Root Folder from “Customer” to “Peter Parker” e.g.)

Now, the OneDrive Integration provides:

  • “Move File/Folder”
  • “Copy File”
  • “Delete File/Folder”

Why is copy the only function that’s only available for files and does not work for folders?

Hi @Frank_dev4 ,

The description and naming of the module might be deceptive. You can just use the “Copy File” module and also copy folders. Just give the ID of the folder as “File ID” and you will be able to copy the whole structure.



Hi Bjorn,
Thanks for the answer, that’s simple but not intuitive ^^.

Maybe an idea for an optimization in Make or the Plugin (not sure who develops what here).

Should I link someone to the topic?

Hi, I’m also trying to do the same, but struggling to find my FILE ID .
When I select FILE ID, then I choose from list, it shows my sites and drive etc, but in file path it doesnt seem to work.

When I got to enter manually it asks for SITE ID, FILE ID, etc, but I have no idea what to put in there. I’ve tried googling but its not very clear.

Any idea where I can find this out from? I’m signed into my sharepoint/one drive, and I am the admin.

Thank you.

What is the best way to get/expose the “File ID” needed to do this?
