I'm about to copy 500,000 files into blob storage, and I'd like to set Cache-Control headers on them as well. I'm planning to use CloudXplorer to do the copy. Although it can set the headers for individual files, if I try to set them at the container or
folder level, they don't stick (the dialogs appear to accept the commands, but when I check the metadata afterwards, they aren't set).
Is there another tool available that works for this kind of thing? Or am I going to need to write a program to do it?
Do take a look at Cloud Storage Studio (http://www.cerebrata.com/Products/CloudStorageStudio), a tool my company has built. It allows you to set blob properties at either the blob container
level or at a folder level. Since Windows Azure Blob Storage only supports this functionality at blob level, what we do is fetch all blobs (for that container or folder) and set the blob properties on each blob.
I've attached 2 screenshots.
Hope this helps.
