Replacement for VSS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks:

    I like VSS on my file server.  When someone accidentally overwrites a file, no problem!  Just restore the prior version.

    But VSS doesn't work in Azure Storage Files.

    Is there a way to replicate that functionality?

  • Right now there isn't functionality built in to Azure Files to do automated backups natively.

    But this blog post by Mark Brown, outlines how you can create your own automated backup jobs using WebJobs and AZCopy, which might satisfy your requirements.
