blob storage files missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a stage environment. We store images that our application uses as thumbnails in this environment. These are not deleted at all and our deployment scripts does not delete files from storage.

    After a deployment to stage today, we noticed that almost all of the files were missing.  I checked in management portal and noticed that those containers were missing.

    Did turn on monitoring and logging after this.

    Is there any way to troubleshoot this?

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, Azure storage is persistent Cloud data storage that serves a variety of purposes, it's save, and the data will not automatically disappear, are you sure the images are store in blob before your application run? Have you shared azure subscription with others? If this is related to your application, please check carefully, if this is related to azure itself, please contact support at: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/support/contact/ .

    At currently, I think you need to build your own project to monitor azure storage, below article may give you some guidance, http://benfoster.io/blog/monitoring-files-in-azure-blob-storage
