(Azure) Tip of the Day: New Azure Storage Explorer & AzCopy integration feature

Today's tip...

You can now use AzCopy v10 (Preview) for uploading and downloading Blobs from Azure Storage Explorer.

 To enable this feature:

  • Download and install Azure Storage Explorer
  • Open Azure Storage Explorer, select "Experimental" menu, select "Use AzCopy for Improved Blob Upload and Download"

When enabled, AzCopy will be used in the following scenarios:

  • Upload of folders and files to blob containers, either via the toolbar or drag and drop.
  • Downloading of folders and files, either via the toolbar or context menu.
  • Supports resume option by default, very useful for large uploads
  • Auto generate AzCopy command with required arguments (this saves lot of time)
