Azure Blob Storage - Blob Type

#1 Post by RogerD » 2019-01-24 16:55

FileZilla is doing a great job uploading to my Azure blob storage account but I am having a small issue. When files are uploaded they are uploaded as Append Blobs, which seems reasonable, but I need to upload my files as Block Blobs so I can put move them into the Azure Archive storage tier after they are uploaded. Append Blobs can not be move to the Archive Storage tier from hot or cold storage. Converting Append Blobs to Block Blobs is also not supported in Azure.

Is there a way to specify the blob type when uploading to Azure Blob Storage with FieZilla Pro?

Thanks,
Roger

Unfortunately no, that isn't possible. Maybe in a future version.

That is unfortunate because not supporting Block Blobs prevents users from taking advantage of low cost Azure Archival storage for backups.
