    As you mentioned, we initiate a change detection job once every 24 hours to enumerate the Azure file share and scan for changes. This is required for the Azure file share because Azure Files currently lacks a change notification mechanism like Windows Server has. Long term we will add this capability and have automatic immediate sync.

    There is now a way to trigger sync to happen on files that are placed directly in the Azure File share. With this new cmdlet you can point sync to particular files or directories and have it look for changes right then. This is intended for scenarios where some type of automated process in Azure is doing the file edits or migrations are done by an admin (like moving a new directory of files into the share). For end-user changes, the best thing to do is install Azure File Sync in an IaaS VM…
