copy blobs between azure, s3 and local storage

AppVeyor: AppVeyor

Azure Copy

Allows easy copying between S3, Azure, Dropbox, Sharepoint Online, OneDrive and local filesystem.


To access each cloud provider various keys/passwords will needed to be added to the azurecopy.exe.config (or app.config if you're coding your own). The AppSetting keys to use are:



OneDrive: (yes yes, it still says skydrive in the config).


Sharepoint Online:

For Azure,S3 and Sharepoint Online you simply copy the configuration values from the appropriate portal to the azurecopy.exe.config file directly. If you are unsure where to find these configuration values please feel free to contact me at and I can direct you.

For OneDrive and Dropbox the configuration is a little more invovled.

For OneDrive you need to issue the command:

azurecopy -configonedrive

and then follow the instructions. This basically involves copying a URL to a browser, accepting the OneDrive prompt saying you allow AzureCopy to access your OneDrive account and then copying part of the response URL back into the command prompt. The instructions will be clearly displayed in the command prompt.

For Dropbox you need to issue the command:

azurecopy -configdropbox

Again, follow the instructions and the config file will be automatically modified for you.
