Using AzCopy to Migrate Local Files to Azure blob Storage with SMB Permission

AzCopy is a command-line utility that you can use to copy blobs or files to or from a storage account. This article helps you download AzCopy, connect to your storage account, and then transfer data.


Download

First, download the AzCopy V10 executable file to any directory on your computer. AzCopy V10 is just an executable file, so there's nothing to install.


Run AzCopy

For convenience, consider adding the directory location of the AzCopy executable to your system path for ease of use. That way you can type azcopy from any directory on your system.

If you choose not to add the AzCopy directory to your path, you'll have to change directories to the location of your AzCopy executable and type azcopy or .\azcopy in Windows PowerShell command prompts.


You can provide authorization credentials by using Azure Active Directory (AD), or by using a Shared Access Signature (SAS) token.

Use this table as a guide:

Storage typeCurrently supported method of authorization
Blob storageAzure AD & SAS
Blob storage (hierarchical namespace)Azure AD & SAS
File storageSAS only

Option 1: Use Azure Active Directory

This option is available for blob Storage only. By using Azure Active Directory, you can provide credentials once instead of having to append a SAS token to each command.

Option 2: Use a SAS token

You can append a SAS token to each source or destination URL that use in your AzCopy commands.

This example command recursively copies data from a local directory to a blob container. A fictitious SAS token is appended to the end of the container URL.

AzCopy
azcopy copy "C:\local\path" "https://account.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer1/?sv=2018-03-28&ss=bjqt&srt=sco&sp=rwddgcup&se=2019-05-01T05:01:17Z&st=2019-04-30T21:01:17Z&spr=https&sig=MGCXiyEzbtttkr3ewJIh2AR8KrghSy1DGM9ovN734bQF4%3D" --recursive=true

To learn more about SAS tokens and how to obtain one, see Using shared access signatures (SAS).


To see a list of commands, type azcopy -h and then press the ENTER key.

To learn about a specific command, just include the name of the command (For example: azcopy list -h).

Inline help


Use in Azure Storage Explorer

Storage Explorer uses AzCopy to perform all of its data transfer operations. You can use Storage Explorer if you want to leverage the performance advantages of AzCopy, but you prefer to use a graphical user interface rather than the command line to interact with your files.

Storage Explorer uses your account key to perform operations, so after you sign into Storage Explorer, you won't need to provide additional authorization credentials.

Create a user delegation SAS with PowerShell


About the user delegation SAS

A SAS token for access to a container or blob may be secured by using either Azure AD credentials or an account key. A SAS secured with Azure AD credentials is called a user delegation SAS, because the OAuth 2.0 token used to sign the SAS is requested on behalf of the user.

Microsoft recommends that you use Azure AD credentials when possible as a security best practice, rather than using the account key, which can be more easily compromised. When your application design requires shared access signatures, use Azure AD credentials to create a user delegation SAS for superior security. For more information about the user delegation SAS, see Create a user delegation SAS.


Install the PowerShell module

1 Uninstall any previous installations of Azure PowerShell:

    • Remove any previous installations of Azure PowerShell from Windows using the Apps & features setting under Settings.
    • Remove all Azure modules from %Program Files%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules.

    2 Make sure that you have the latest version of PowerShellGet installed. Open a Windows PowerShell window, and run the following command to install the latest version:

    You might get following error from some old OS which might not install .net framework version :

    PS C:\Tools> Install-Module PowerShellGet -Repository PSGallery -Force

    When you create a user delegation SAS with Azure PowerShell, the user delegation key that is used to sign the SAS is created for you implicitly. The start time and expiry time that you specify for the SAS are also used as the start time and expiry time for the user delegation key.

    Because the maximum interval over which the user delegation key is valid is 7 days from the start date, you should specify an expiry time for the SAS that is within 7 days of the start time. The SAS is invalid after the user delegation key expires, so a SAS with an expiry time of greater than 7 days will still only be valid for 7 days.

    To create a user delegation SAS for a container or blob with Azure PowerShell, first create a new Azure Storage context object, specifying the -UseConnectedAccount parameter. The -UseConnectedAccount parameter specifies that the command creates the context object under the Azure AD account with which you signed in.

    Remember to replace placeholder values in angle brackets with your own values:



    $ctx = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName <storage-account> -UseConnectedAccount


    Example:
    $ctx = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName fileshare4ca -UseConnectedAccount



    Create a user delegation SAS for a blob

    To return a user delegation SAS token for a blob, call the New-AzStorageBlobSASToken command, passing in the Azure Storage context object that you created previously.

    The following syntax returns a user delegation SAS for a blob. The example specifies the -FullUri parameter, which returns the blob URI with the SAS token appended. Remember to replace the placeholder values in brackets with your own values:


    New-AzStorageBlobSASToken -Context $ctx `
        -Container <container> `
        -Blob <blob> `
        -Permission racwd `
        -ExpiryTime <date-time>
        -FullUri
    

    The user delegation SAS URI returned will be similar to:

    Since J drive is network share drive which was manually mapped using File Explorer, Azcopy tool does not support it well. But if you change source drive from network drive to local, the command will run well. All SMB permissions will be copied over to remote Azure storage file share. 

    Notes:

    Permissions on a shared resource, such as a folder or volume, are determined by the local NTFS permissions for that resource and by the protocol used to access the shared resource:

    • Server Message Block (SMB) protocol

      SMB–based access control (for Windows-based file systems) is implemented by granting permissions to the individual users and groups.

    • Network File System (NFS) protocol

      NFS–based access control (for UNIX-based file systems) is implemented by granting permissions to specific client computers and groups, using network names.
    The final access permissions for a shared resource are determined by considering both the NTFS permissions and the sharing protocol permissions, and then applying the more restrictive permissions. If you enable access-based enumeration on an SMB-based shared folder, Windows hides files and folders for which users do not have Read permissions.

    Fix issue (TBT):

    MS Doc:

    So found a way to get it to work. Instead of mapping the driving using the net use command I used the script provided from the Azure portal for that share. You can get this from clicking on the share in the portal and then the connect button it will give you two options for Authentication AD or Storage Key. I selected storage key and copied the script and ran that in powershell. I was then able to copy ntfs permissions with robocopy or azcopy.

    ./azcopy.exe copy "C:\Test\1991\" "https://fileshares.file.core.windows.net/fs2/Test5/?sv=2021-06-08&ss=bfqt&srt=sco&sp=rwdlacupiytfx&se=2022-08-23T02:26:57Z&st=2022-08-22T18:26:57Z&spr=https&sig=aFpvadfceMrDVdfsder45ERTrfgdE%2BZRY%2BmA%3D" --from-to=LocalFile --preserve-smb-info=true --preserve-smb-permissions=true --recursive
    


    > ROBOCOPY /Mir <Source> <Target>
    > ROBOCOPY /E /Copy:S /IS /IT <Source> <Target>


    The first Robocopy command above will copy data and security for files that have been updated, and the second Robocopy command will refresh file security for all files, without copying any file data.

    robocopy /Mir J:\source_folder O:\destination_folder\test


    ROBOCOPY "\\Server\Share" "\\Server\Share" /E /SEC /COPY:DT /R:1 /W:1 /DCOPY:T /V /TEE /log:"C:\Users\Username\Documents\Share.log"

    Generate AzCopy Command from Azure Storage Explorer

     
    Start an upload task, then you will find an option to "Copy AzCopy Command to Clipboard"


    Generated command will looks like this:

    $env:AZCOPY_CRED_TYPE = "Anonymous";

    ./azcopy.exe copy "C:\test\1992\" "https://fileshare4ca.file.core.windows.net/fs2/?sv=2021-04-10&se=2022-09-08T13%3A43%3A24Z&sr=s&sp=rwl&sig=G16mpJRMeajshfjJHJHGH78384sjhfjYIUI%3D" --overwrite=prompt --from-to=LocalFile --follow-symlinks --put-md5 --follow-symlinks --preserve-smb-info=true --disable-auto-decoding=false --recursive --log-level=INFO;

    $env:AZCOPY_CRED_TYPE = "";







    Troubleshooting

    By default, the log and plan files are located in the %USERPROFILE%\.azcopy directory on Windows or $HOME$\.azcopy directory on Mac and Linux, but you can change that location.

    Folder's timestamp will not be kept but files will be. 


    If you are facing some kind of SSL/TLS 1.2 support issue, you might want to change your OS to support TLS 1.2.

    1. The best way to Migrate Local Files to Azure blob Storage with SMB Permission is by using GUI backup/sync tools like Gs Richcopy 360 or Sharegate
