Not having visual studio be unresponsive when deleting large amounts of blobs. this should be a background task.
When we manipulate large amounts of blobs through the server explorer tools for blob storage, visual studio becomes unusable until it has completed its tasks on the storage account. Please make the background tasks so that I may continue working while visual studio is executing the batch of commands.
for example deleting 50 000 blobs will render visual studio useless for a few minutes.
Alexandre - we don't currently have plans to make this a background task in Visual Studio. However, one alternative would be to use Storage Explorer (http://storageexplorer.com) to do Storage operations separate from Visual Studio. Storage Explorer is optimized for scale, so you can continue using it and interacting with other Storage Accounts while deleting thousands of blobs.
