Description

The Get-AzureStorageFile cmdlet lists directories and files for the share or directory that you specify. Specify the Path parameter to get an instance of a directory or file in the specified path.

This cmdlet returns AzureStorageFile and AzureStorageDirectory objects. You can use the IsDirectory property to distinguish between folders and files.

Examples

Example 1: List directories in a share

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageFile -ShareName "share1" | where {$_.GetType().Name -eq "CloudFileDirectory"}

This command lists only the directories in the share ContosoShare06. It first retrieves both files and directories, passes them to the where operator by using the pipeline operator, then discards any objects whose type is not "CloudFileDirectory".

Example 2: List a File Directory

PS C:\> Get-AzureStorageFile -ShareName "ContosoShare06" -Path "ContosoWorkingFolder" | Get-AzureStorageFile

This command lists the files and folders in the directory ContosoWorkingFolder under the share ContosoShare06. It first gets the directory instance, and then pipelines it to the Get-AzureStorageFile cmdlet to list the directory.

Required Parameters

-Directory

Specifies a folder as a CloudFileDirectory object. This cmdlet gets the folder that this parameter specifies. To obtain a directory, use the New-AzureStorageDirectory cmdlet. You can also use the Get-AzureStorageFile cmdlet to obtain a directory.

Type:CloudFileDirectory
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Share

Specifies a CloudFileShare object. This cmdlet gets a file or directory from the file share that this parameter specifies. To obtain a CloudFileShare object, use the Get-AzureStorageShare cmdlet. This object contains the Storage context. If you specify this parameter, do not specify the Context parameter.

Type:CloudFileShare
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ShareName

Specifies the name of the file share. This cmdlet gets a file or directory from the file share that this parameter specifies.

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

Optional Parameters

-ClientTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the client side time-out interval, in seconds, for one service request. If the previous call fails within 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 mitigate network connection problems in low bandwidth environments, such as 100 kilobits per second. The default value is 10.

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

Specifies an Azure Storage context. To obtain a Storage context, use the New-AzureStorageContext cmdlet.

Type:AzureStorageContext
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationAction

Specifies how this cmdlet responds to an information event.The acceptable values for this parameter are:- Continue

  • Ignore
  • Inquire
  • SilentlyContinue
  • Stop
  • Suspend
Type:ActionPreference
Aliases:infa
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationVariable

Specifies an information variable.

Type:String
Aliases:iv
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Path

Specifies the path of a folder.If you omit the Path parameter, Get-AzureStorageFile lists the directories and files in the specified file share or directory. If you include the Path parameter, Get-AzureStorageFile returns an instance of a directory or file in the specified path.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PipelineVariable

Stores the value of the current pipeline element as a variable, for any named command as it flows through the pipeline.

Type:String
Aliases:pv
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ServerTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the service-side timeout interval, in seconds, for a request. If the specified interval elapses before the service processes the request, the Storage service returns an error.

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