How can we improve Azure Storage?

Update the Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) to support the Larger Block Blobs available

2 Suggestions:

1. Update the Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) to support the Larger Block Blobs now available.

21st December 2016 - New V1 Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) available.
https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/microsoft-azure-storage-import-export-announcements/
22nd December 2016 - General Availability of Larger Block Blobs in Azure Storage, up from 195GB to 4.77TB.
https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/general-availability-larger-block-blobs-in-azure-storage/

Except the V1 Tool does not allow for the larger block blobs, and excludes any files that are over 195GB in size, even though Block Blob storage now supports this (a whole day later than the tool was announced).
Guess I'll have to try and use /BlobType:PageBlob after the event and see what happens...

2. Have the Azure Teams talk to each other more to avoid these issues in future.
