Copy files between Containers in Azure Storage Account
There are some requirements sometimes to run a scheduled task to copy files between storage containers in same storage account or different storage account. To address this requirement, we need to run the relevant PowerShell script as a scheduled task. There are several ways available to run a scheduled task in azure. One of the method is based on Azure Function App. Create a Function App based on Runtime Stack as PowerShell Core as I have detailed the steps on how to achieve this with the help of an Azure Function app in my previous post here: https://www.cloudcompute.info/run-a-scheduled-task-in-azure/
Following PowerShell Script is useful for Copying files between Containers in Azure Storage Account
$srcRGName = "name here" $srcStgAccount = "qrfree" $srcContainer = "source" $blobName = "source1/test.txt" $srcRGName = "name here" $destStgAccount = "qrfree" $destContainer = "archive" $srcStorageKey = Get-AzStorageAccountKey -Name $srcStgAccount -ResourceGroupName $srcRGName $destStorageKey = Get-AzStorageAccountKey -Name $destStgAccount -ResourceGroupName $srcRGName $srcContext = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName $srcStgAccount -StorageAccountKey $srcStorageKey.Value $destContext = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName $destStgAccount -StorageAccountKey $destStorageKey.Value $copyOperation = Start-AzStorageBlobCopy -SrcBlob $blobName -SrcContainer $srcContainer -Context $srcContext -DestBlob $blobName -DestContainer $destContainer -DestContext $destContext -Force
Manu, does this copy all the content everytime or it can identify the delta and copy that only.
Dear Anirban, the solution copies the blob specified and not suitable for a delta copy purpose. For example, $blobName = “source1/test.txt” copies the test.txt only
