empty image from blob storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is how I try to upload an image to Azure blog storage, then upload an empty file located there.

    I try to upload this image here:

    CloudStorageAccount storageAccount = new CloudStorageAccount(new Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Auth.StorageCredentials(Accountname, KeyValue), true);
                // Create the blob client.
                CloudBlobClient blobClient = storageAccount.CreateCloudBlobClient();
                // Retrieve a reference to a container.
                CloudBlobContainer container = blobClient.GetContainerReference(ContainerValue);
                CloudBlockBlob blockBlob = container.GetBlockBlobReference(filename);
                using (var f = System.IO.File.Open(model.FileToUpload.FileName, FileMode.Create))
                    await blockBlob.UploadFromStreamAsync(f);

    But if i try to open this image say this.

    From danish to english: We can not open this file

  • Was this ever working before or have you always had this issue? 

    What documentation are you following? 

    We have some documentation that I have tested and confirmed it works on uploading/ downloading from blob storage. Most recently I used the PowerShell commands to quickly move files.  

    Transfer Objects to/from Azure Blob Storage 

    The above link is for PowerShell but if you look to the left you will see other options as well:

  • There are several who tell me that the error lies when I try to upload. So here.

    using (var f = System.IO.File.OpenRead(fValue))
                        await blockBlob.UploadFromStreamAsync(f);

    but i get the error: FileNotFoundException

  • Jesper I don't have enough information to advise here. 

    Have you reviewed the docs I provided? 

    Is there a doc you are currently following? Can you share?

  • Hello peter.sen, 

    Without knowning more details, I believe that you might need to use the UploadFromFile or UploadFromFileAsync method.


    string filepath ="..\.\somepath";

    blockBlob.UploadFromFile(filepath,Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.AccessCondition accessCondition = null, Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Blob.BlobRequestOptions options = null, Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.OperationContext operationContext = null);
