Description

The New-AzureStorageDirectory cmdlet creates a directory. This cmdlet returns a CloudFileDirectory object.

Examples

Example 1: Create a folder in a file share

PS C:\>New-AzureStorageDirectory -ShareName "ContosoShare06" -Path "ContosoWorkingFolder"

This command creates a folder named ContosoWorkingFolder in the file share named ContosoShare06.

Example 2: Create a folder in a file share specified in a file share object

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageShare -Name "ContosoShare06" | New-AzureStorageDirectory -Path "ContosoWorkingFolder"

This command uses the Get-AzureStorageShare cmdlet to get the file share named ContosoShare06, and then passes it to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet creates the folder named ContosoWorkingFolder in ContosoShare06.

Required Parameters

-Directory

Specifies a folder as a CloudFileDirectory object. This cmdlet creates the folder in the location 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
-Path

Specifies the path of a folder. This cmdlet creates a folder for the path that this cmdlet specifies.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Share

Specifies a CloudFileShare object. This cmdlet creates a folder in 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 creates a folder in 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 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.

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:IStorageContext
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ServerTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the length of the time-out period for the server part of a request.

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