Overview

The 1.18.1 version of Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer is available as a free download on our software library. The actual developer of the free software is Microsoft. Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer can be installed on 32-bit versions of Windows 7/8/10. The most popular versions among the software users are 1.1, 0.9 and 0.8. Table Storage Explorer For Windows Azure free download - Internet Explorer, Process Explorer, Offline Explorer, and many more programs. Upload, download, and manage Azure blobs, files, queues, and tables, as well as Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Data Lake Storage entities. Easily access virtual machine disks, and work with either Azure Resource Manager or classic storage accounts. Manage and configure cross-origin resource sharing rules. We extensively use Azure Blob Storage to upload and download files. When we are uploading or downloading a file, reporting back the progress percentage to the end-user becomes an important aspect of our programming task. In this article, we are going to see how it can be achieved using the Azure Blob Storage SDK v12 in c#. Storage Explorer will open a webpage for you to sign in. After you successfully sign in with an Azure account, the account and the Azure subscriptions associated with that account appear under ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT.Select the Azure subscriptions that you want to work with, and then select Apply. EXPLORER displays the storage accounts associated with the selected Azure subscriptions.

Azure Blob Storage is a service for storing large amounts of unstructured data, such as text or binary data, that can be accessed from anywhere in the world via HTTP or HTTPS.You can use Blob storage to expose data publicly to the world, or to store application data privately. In this article, you'll learn how to use Storage Explorerto work with blob containers and blobs.

Prerequisites

To complete the steps in this article, you'll need the following:

Create a blob container

All blobs must reside in a blob container, which is simply a logical grouping of blobs. An account can contain an unlimited number of containers, and each container can store an unlimited number of blobs.

The following steps illustrate how to create a blob container within Storage Explorer.

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account within which you wish to create the blob container.

  3. Right-click Blob Containers, and - from the context menu - select Create Blob Container.

  4. A text box will appear below the Blob Containers folder. Enter the name for your blob container. See Create a container for information on rules and restrictions on naming blob containers.

  5. Press Enter when done to create the blob container, or Esc to cancel. Once the blob container has been successfully created, it will be displayed under the Blob Containers folder for the selected storage account.

View a blob container's contents

Blob containers contain blobs and folders (that can also contain blobs).

The following steps illustrate how to view the contents of a blob container within Storage Explorer:

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account containing the blob container you wish to view.

  3. Expand the storage account's Blob Containers.

  4. Right-click the blob container you wish to view, and - from the context menu - select Open Blob Container Editor.You can also double-click the blob container you wish to view.

  5. The main pane will display the blob container's contents.

Delete a blob container

Blob containers can be easily created and deleted as needed. (To see how to delete individual blobs,refer to the section, Managing blobs in a blob container.)

The following steps illustrate how to delete a blob container within Storage Explorer:

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account containing the blob container you wish to view.

  3. Expand the storage account's Blob Containers.

  4. Right-click the blob container you wish to delete, and - from the context menu - select Delete.You can also press Delete to delete the currently selected blob container.

  5. Select Yes to the confirmation dialog.

Copy a blob container

Storage Explorer enables you to copy a blob container to the clipboard, and then paste that blob container into another storage account. (To see how to copy individual blobs,refer to the section, Managing blobs in a blob container.)

The following steps illustrate how to copy a blob container from one storage account to another.

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account containing the blob container you wish to copy.

  3. Expand the storage account's Blob Containers.

  4. Right-click the blob container you wish to copy, and - from the context menu - select Copy Blob Container.

  5. Right-click the desired 'target' storage account into which you want to paste the blob container, and - from the context menu - select Paste Blob Container.

Get the SAS for a blob container

A shared access signature (SAS) provides delegated access to resources in your storage account.This means that you can grant a client limited permissions to objects in your storage account for a specified period of time and with a specified set of permissions, without having toshare your account access keys.

The following steps illustrate how to create a SAS for a blob container:

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account containing the blob container for which you wish to get a SAS.

  3. Expand the storage account's Blob Containers.

  4. Right-click the desired blob container, and - from the context menu - select Get Shared Access Signature.

  5. In the Shared Access Signature dialog, specify the policy, start and expiration dates, time zone, and access levels you want for the resource.

  6. When you're finished specifying the SAS options, select Create.

  7. A second Shared Access Signature dialog will then display that lists the blob container along with the URL and QueryStrings you can use to access the storage resource.Select Copy next to the URL you wish to copy to the clipboard.

  8. When done, select Close.

Manage Access Policies for a blob container

The following steps illustrate how to manage (add and remove) access policies for a blob container:

  1. Open Storage Explorer.

  2. In the left pane, expand the storage account containing the blob container whose access policies you wish to manage.

  3. Expand the storage account's Blob Containers.

  4. Select the desired blob container, and - from the context menu - select Manage Access Policies.

  5. The Access Policies dialog will list any access policies already created for the selected blob container.

Deploy your Single Page App to Azure Storage

Azure Storage Explorer Download Not Working

Once you are signed in to your Azure account and you have your app open in Visual Studio Code, click the deploy button in the Azure Storage explorer - it's the blue up arrow - to deploy your app.

Tip: Looking for a sample app to deploy? Run npx create-react-app my-react-app to create one

Make sure you've compiled your app (run npm run build if you created a sample from create-react-app) prior to deploying it to Azure.

  1. Choose Create New Storage Account
  2. Type a globally unique name for your Storage Account and press Enter. Valid characters for an storage account name are 'a-z' and '0-9'
  3. Create a new Resource Group and accept the default name
  4. Choose a location in a region near you or near other services you may need to access

    It may take up to a minute for the account to be created

  5. When prompted, choose 'Enable website hosting' to configure your storage account for static site hosting
  6. Enter 'index.html' for the index document path
  7. Enter 'index.html' for the 404 error document path

    Index.html is used for the error document because modern Single Page Applications (SPAs) such as React will handle errors in the client. For classic static websites, use the error document to customize your 404 page.

  8. Select the build output from your current workspace if you have your app open already or browse to the directory containing your compiled application code

    If you have a build, out, or dist directory, you'll see it as an option to deploy from.

Once the deployment completes, click Browse to Website in the prompt to view your freshly deployed website.
