How to Rename a Blob Folder?


  • Is there any simple way to rename a Blob "Folder", without looping and renaming all the file contained in that "folder"?

  • Hi,

    As far as I know this isn't possible with the Blob Service API but you might want to have a look at Azure Storage Explorer which does have some renaming features.

    Hope this helps.

  • It's not possible without looping through every blob.  (There's really no such thing as a folder... it's just part of the blob name that has a forward slash after it.)

  • How can I do through programming? AzureExplorer must also be using some sort of code.
