It would be useful if you could lock a folder so that the content residing within the folder is excluded from cloud tiering. This would be similar to the OneDrive feature where you can opt to "always keep on this device". However, I would imagine for the AFS it would be a PowerShell that would be managed by IT rather than at the end user level.3 votes
FileSyncErrorsReport.ps1 is checking for log files with %4 in their name:
These log files are not currently being updated in any of our Windows Server 2019 VMs.
Instead, the correct, updated log files are:
Without modifying the FileSyncErrorsReport.ps1 file, we do not receive the correct troubleshooting information.

In Azure Files, when transitioning a storage tier, it apparently takes some time before being able to transition the tier again (proportional to the amount of data). It would be nice for this information to be displayed somewhere.
I was changing the access tier for 76TB of data, which apparently takes 27days (unbeknown to me), so I kept receiving an error message when trying to change the tier again for weeks. It would be nice to have an ETA/progress for this.3 votes
My project requires an SMB file share with Azure AD authentication, which recognizes remote tenant/organization accounts and groups. Currently Azure Files access is limited to a single tenant/subscription.
An alternative could be SharePoint WebDav shared accross multiple tenants, but it is excessive for the task. Or a domain trust, which is excessive too.3 votes
At the moment if there are any files that are not syncing for whatever reason, we need to use remote desktop connection to connect to the affected server, and run a powershell script to find out why.
Showing these errors in the portal would be a huge benefit.2 votes

Outlook utilizes a "Attach from Cloud" capability that is mainly used for OneDrive uploads. This Cloud definition needs to extend to Azure services as well. This functionality would allow more robust File Sharing capabilities for small to large businesses alike, along with less Virtual Machine processing power being required to use File Shares to their best capabilities.2 votes

When creating a Storage Sync Service and a Sync Group, RBAC permissions to the Hybrid File Sync Service (Microsoft.StorageSync) service in the Cloud Endpoint storage account seem to be not automatically granted.
This forces the user to troubleshoot the sync process (after waiting for 24 hours) by visiting the "Ensure Azure File Sync has access to the storage account" section in the troubleshooting doc:
It would be great if, when creating the Sync Group, the appropiate permissions for the service are granted at the Cloud Endpoint Storage Account selected.
I have an account managing several AAD Directories and subscriptions.
During File Sync Agent initial configuration, I'm unable to select directory, only default directory is selected, so I'm unable to continue.
Please support Azure AD Directory selection during installation!2 votes
It's too easy to delete a file share from the portal. Whilst the storage account itself can have a delete lock it doesn't apply to the actual share.
Need to have locks available at the file share level.2 votes
can set alert for separate file share in storage account would be better2 votes
Whilst I know its possible to setup a Windows Server VM with Active Directory to do this.
For REAL Server less experience I can't see why O365 Users and Groups cannot be used to limit Access to Folder and perhaps even file level.
And NO reason for having a Windows Server VM or two manage this with all the management and maintenance involved.
O365 already provide the "Directory" with User and Groups - so absolutely NO reason why this can't be used to limit access to folders within Shares.2 votes

Using the WindowsAzure.Storage library against file storage, I should have an option to create "directories/one/two/three" in one call. I should not have to wait for this call to fail, check to see whether "directories/one" exists or if the share is blank, and then start creating each level of directory one at a time. As it is, if I call
It will error unless "directories/one/two" already exists.1 vote
