  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting here.

    1. AzCopy supports copying Blobs from one account to another:

      AzCopy.exe /source:https://youraccount1.blob.core.windows.net/srccontainer /sourceKey:key1 /dest:https://youraccount2.blob.core.windows.net/destcontainer /destKey:key2 /s

      AzCopy by default uses server-side asynchronous copy, which doesn't have an SLA on copy speed. If you'd like to achieve consistent copy speed, please consider adding option /SyncCopy to the command line above. For further information of /SyncCopy, please refer to: AzCopy – Introducing synchronous copy and customized content type.

    2. AzCopy supports downloading a Table to local disk and uploading it to another account:

      AzCopy.exe /source:https://youraccount1.table.core.windows.net/srctable /sourceKey:key1 /dest:d:\localfolder /manifest:yourfilename /splitSize:128
      AzCopy.exe /source:d:\localfolder /dest:https://youraccount2.table.core.windows.net/desttable /destKey:key2 /manifest:yourfilename /entityOperation:InsertOrReplace

      If you'd like to achieve better table downloading performance and you do know how the partition keys are arranged in your source table, you can specify option /PKRS in the command line to download table.

    3. AzCopy doesn't support copying Queues.
