        Any updates please. We have lot applications to migrate to Azure Web App - all of them use file share.

        Good to see this being worked on, we're waiting for this as our web application requires use of an SMB path for certain functions.

        Hi,

        Any update on this at all? We've some projects that are waiting on this to be implemented, and it's been a month since the last update.

        Please provide an update on this. As per other comments, this is a final blocker for lift-and-shift scenarios.

        Please also consider having an instance-specific directory available (or drive letter through azure files) - so that instance-specific configuration has somewhere to live. This would be exponentially useful for example for lucene index files, that don't respond well to being shared between instances.

        This would be particularly helpful with hosting java apps using jetty/tomcat that only support file system like access. File storage from worker roles is a beautiful thing, please enable the same in websites. Also, beyond just enabling it, I will add that it might be nice to offer hooks in the portal UX to configure access/mounting of the shares.

        I've run head-first into this. Looking into a "lift and shift" scenario, which in this case is an otherwise EASY conversion to web sites, except for the fact that there is an API in-use that relies on file system access, changes to which are "off limits" for the current exercise. This suggests a need to switch to use Web Roles, but the added complexity there (project & solution changes/conversion, SSL behavior, etc), is causing problems.
