  • Hi,

    There is no statistics provided for blob downloads, or other detailed storage usage. (It would be nice if this was available.)

    One solution is to use a web role to supply the URIs of the blobs (keeping the blob container private), and have the web role keep a count of downloads in Table Storage. I do this on my website for the webcast downloads.

    Regards,
