    Hi folks,

    We are evaluating what we can do to address this feedback and would very much appreciate your continued votes and suggestions on it.

    One alternative to mounting the share on-premises over port 445 is Azure File Sync, which enables you to create a cache of an Azure file share on an on-premises Windows Server. Azure File Sync only sends data over the Azure Files HTTPS (using the File REST APIs). You can learn more about Azure File Sync here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    I am trying to upload ~8 GB to an Azure Files share from my workstation. It uses Windows 10 Home, not Windows Server, so I can't use Azure File Sync right? The only way I've been able to get around Charter Spectrum blocking 445 is to use a VPN tunnel, which severely bottlenecks my upload speed to 30 KB/s. It will take days to upload at that rate.
