Azure Blob Download Task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Azure Blob Download task to download multiple files from a container on my Blob storage. It works fine when I download one file. However when the container contains multiple files it downloads the first file and keeps on running indefinitely without downloading any of the other files. It creates the names of the others files but they are all 0 kb in length.

  • Hi HemantSippy,

    I can reproduce that behavior. The task keeps spinning and the files are 0 kb except the first one.

    As a workaround, instead of that task, maybe use a script task to download, check download blobs.

    For better result, I'm moving this question to a proper forum, thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi,

     As a work around I have used AzCopy. If you use the /S option it recursively copies all the files.

  • Actually, what I meant was I am using SSIS Execute Process Task and called the AzCopy.exe from the same. AzCopy.exe is available as a free download at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/storage-use-azcopy/
