Add "Files" service to storage account not possible.


  • Hello,

    For the moment I use a free trial Microsoft Azure to find out if this is usefull for our company.  I want to do some tests with the "Files" service, but I can not add this service.  Is anyone else having this problem ?  The only services I see is "Blobs".

    Can you help me please ?

    Thank you very much,

  • Hello,

    A general-purpose storage account has two performance tiers (stranded and premium)

    It’s look like you have created premium storage account and not a stranded storage account.

    Premium Storage is currently available only for storing data on disks used by Azure Virtual Machines. These disks are backed by page blobs in Azure Storage. Azure block blobs and the File, Table, and Queue services are not currently supported in premium storage accounts.

    Stranded storage account allows you to store Tables, Queues, Files, Blobs and Azure virtual machine disks.
