Description

The Get-AzureStorageBlobContent cmdlet downloads the specified storage blob. If the blob name is not valid for the local computer, this cmdlet automatically resolves it if it is possible.

Examples

Example 1: Download blob content by name

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageBlobContent -Container "ContainerName" -Blob "Blob" -Destination "C:\test\"

This command downloads a blob by name.

Example 2: Download blob content using the pipeline

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageBlob -Container containername -Blob blobname | Get-AzureStorageBlobContent

This command uses the pipeline to find and download blob content.

Example 3: Download blob content using the pipeline and a wildcard character

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageContainer container* | Get-AzureStorageBlobContent -Blob "cbox.exe" -Destination "C:\test"

This example uses the asterisk wildcard character and the pipeline to find and download blob content.

Required Parameters

-Blob

Specifies the name of the blob to be downloaded.

Type:String
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CloudBlob

Specifies a cloud blob. To obtain a CloudBlob object, use the Get-AzureStorageBlob cmdlet.

Type:CloudBlob
Aliases:ICloudBlob
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CloudBlobContainer

Specifies a CloudBlobContainer object from the Azure storage client library. You can create it or use the Get-AzureStorageContainer cmdlet.

Type:CloudBlobContainer
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Container

Specifies the name of container that has the blob you want to download.

Type:String
Position:1

Optional Parameters

-CheckMd5

Specifies whether to check the Md5 sum for the downloaded file.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ClientTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the client-side time-out interval, in seconds, for one service request. If the previous call fails in the specified interval, this cmdlet retries the request. If this cmdlet does not receive a successful response before the interval elapses, this cmdlet returns an error.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ConcurrentTaskCount

Specifies the maximum concurrent network calls. You can use this parameter to limit the concurrency to throttle local CPU and bandwidth usage by specifying the maximum number of concurrent network calls. The specified value is an absolute count and is not multiplied by the core count. This parameter can help reduce network connection problems in low bandwidth environments, such as 100 kilobits per second. The default value is 10.The default value is 10.
