  1. Renaming a 'folder' places blobs in the wrong place

    If you have a 'folder' named say 'level1/level2/level3', if you rename 'level3' to 'level3renamed', the blobs it contained are incorrectly moved to 'level1/level3renamed' instead of 'level1/level2/level3renamed'. It isn't possible to work around this by entering 'level2/level3renamed' as the rename target, since including a '/' disables the button.

      • Simplificar los metodos de acceso, llevo mas de 1 mes intentando simplemente descargar o cargar una imagen blob a mis cuenta con VB.net

        Requiero recetas de cocina para subir y descargar imagenes con vb.net; he intentado de varias formas y es confuso porque ofrecen opciones que solo confunden o exlique claramente en que momento se usa cada forma y hagan ejemplos claros y simples que funcionen. Lo importante NO ES QUE SE SIENTAN GENIOS sino que todos usen sus herramientas facilimente y paguen con gusto por ello. Yo uso almacenamiento de blob donde subo y descargo con AZcopy armando comando desde VBA que ejecuto con shell, lo cual funciona bien, pero con VB.NET practicamente no tienen nada y todo casi es con c#,…

        • Improve file search functionality in Active blobs

          Improve search functionality in Active blobs. I would like to be able to search files where it does not rely on case-sensitive and allows me to search by extension. (.png, .jpg, etc.) Currently, if I was to type ".png" in the search bar, it will return nothing.

          • Option to customize number of file views per pagination.

            Can we have a setting option that allows the user to set how many files they would like to view per pagination? Currently, it is defaulted at showing 1 to 100. I would like to be able to change 100 to 1000 if I wanted to.

            • Azcopy supports creating snapshots instead overwriting data

              When you sync/copy data to a Blob Storage, it would be interesting creating snapshots of existing Blob that is going to be updated because new file/blob exists in source.

              Example:

              Sync1:

              Storage -----> BlobStorage
              file1 -----> file1

              Sync2, somebody updates file1 in source:

              file1 -------> file1 (generate file1 snapshot with sync1 version)

              Kind regards,

                • Azure File Sync Scalability and Performance Metrics for Capacity Planning

                  There are many scale and performance target metrics, and these metrics are very hard to determine as a local server administrator. For example I have reached the capacity for server endpoints per registered sync server. However many of those server endpoints are very small, any likely can be combined if I structure my local files in an optimized hierarchy. However some of those server endpoints are very large. Trying to manually figure out an optimized combination is horribly time consuming and likely not accurate enough to trust. In addition if I were to put in the work to figure out…

                      • Firewall rule that can accept connections from VNET on the other AAD tenant

                        Currently Storage firewall have a limitation, that source VNET must be in the same AAD tenant.
                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-network-security?toc=%2fazure%2fvirtual-network%2ftoc.json#required-permissions

                        It would be nice if cross tenant connection is enabled. It is quite useful to protect storage data by VNET basis and at the same time can accept connection from other partner companies who want to work on the specific storage account.

                        • Blob Life cycle management for page blobs

                          Provide life cycle management feature for Page blobs too similar to the block blob.
                          Currently SQL server 2014 or older version support backing up data to page blobs only. Hence it would be good to have the page blob life cycle management policy on it. This will help in managing the deletion of page blobs on a timely basis.

                                • When Azure Storage Explorer could add AAD application for ADLSv2

                                  Currently we need to use the REST API of Update to add permissions. The following link is an introduction to the API:
                                  https://docs.microsoft.com/zh-cn/rest/api/storageservices/datalakestoragegen2/path/update

                                  Finally tested, you can add AAD's APP to the folder.

                                  1. Create a SAS Token.

                                  2. Save the Application ID.

                                  3. Use a Postman or other tool to send a Path request.
                                  Method: PATCH
                                  Url: http://{accountName}.{dfs.core.windows.net }/{filesystem}/{path}?action={action}&position={position}&retainUncommittedData={retainUncommittedData}&timeout={timeout}&{SAS Token}
                                  Header: x-ms-acl: user::rwx,group::r-x,mask::rwx,other::---,user:87867a54-2d32-4d28-9444-ca42fd022abd:rwx
                                  x-ms-version: 2018-11-09

                                  Sample Url: https://mscssadlsv2.dfs.core.windows.net/123//?action=setAccessControl&sv=2018-03-28&ss=bfqt&srt=sco&sp=rwdlacup&st=2019-01-16T23%3A37%3A00Z&se=2019-01-23T23%3A37%3A00Z&sig=lV8gu%2FgLeqsIhh2UDRxCSX0U7rPNgKpIQ7adxSMbe7g%3D

                                  Is there any KB / road map / feature request for when AAD applications will be supported under storage explorer?

                                  Can we add the feature to the ASE?

                                    Hello, Is there an approximate date for HTTP / 2 to be enabled in Azure Blob Storage?

                                    A few months ago I read it was in your backlog, but I do not know if that reqeuerimiento is still waiting.

                                    • Allow transfer pause/throttle

                                      It would be great if Azure Storage Explorer have an option to pause
                                      selected transfer (upload/download) operations. Currently, v1.6.1 allows the user to 'Cancel' or 'Cancel All' transfers. Ideally, if there was another set of buttons like 'Pause' and 'Pause All'.

                                      It would be even better if the configuration allowed transfer throttling. Let say to limit the bandwidth used by the Storage Explorer during transfer.

                                      • Azure File Sync missing file on other site if file is being use

                                        We have setup and testing Azure file sync for 2 sites (Site A and B) and everything is working and syncing fine until for some reason whenever a file (.dwg) is being use and model on site B, the same file will be missing on site A (vice-versa). The only way for the file(s) to re-appear again is to close the file, wait for few minutes, and it will show again to the other site. Does this happened to other people as well?

                                        • Your guide pages should be referencing powershell Az commands rather than AzureRM commands

                                          There are document pages referenced from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-powershell-guide-full that still have AzureRm commands. Which means the commands on those pages *fail* when only Az is installed.
