I have a folder that I export documents to from an electronic notebook.  I then want the files in that export folder to be moved to another Dropbox folder.  I keep getting the “file/folder not found” error. How do I accomplish this?

Thanks for letting us know, @SHarris

Hello, I have found the fix for the error.  I needed to reconnect the folder from Dropbox.

Hi @SHarris 

Firstable i highly recommend you to search for the folder you want to move your files to, by writing the beginning of its name (or its full name):

You’ll then get all the infos:

Next you’ll be able to move your file to the folder by using the “path” property of previous search step:

Hi @SHarris,

Thank you for using the Zapier Community! Here to help! 

 The 'File/Folder Not Found' error when moving a file to a new folder when using the 'Move File in Dropbox' action can be caused due to one or more of the following:

  • The Folder itself has been deleted from Dropbox
  • The mapped field is something other than the Path: field. 

Does that point you in the right direction? Let me know your thoughts!

Hi @SHarris 

Make sure you have selected proper dropbox folder to test your trigger. If it still shows no file is found, then manually add a file to that folder and then test, it should give you the test file in the trigger step.
