PDF upload in Google Forms into Google Drive folder

I have a google forms that asks individuals to upload documents that i have limited to only be PDFs. I want to then take those pdfs and drop them into a google drive folder created by the name of the person completing the form (ie: Sally submits her 3 documents, in drive, a “Sally” folder is created and her 3 documents are labeled as they’re supposed to be (ie: Sally_1, Sally_2, and Sally_3). 

HOWEVER, it’s not actually pulling in the pdfs. 

I’ve attached screenshots of the Zap as well as my GDrive folder where it is going.

Thank you!!
