Azure File Size Limits in attached Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to figure out if I am going to hit a file size limit. I am aware that Azure block blobs have a file size limit 200GB while page blobs have a 1TB limit. I created a Windows Server 2008R2 VM and attached geo redundant storage to it set to 1TB.   What I can't seem to figure out is if the attached storage has file limits imposed on it by it's underlying Azure storage - and I am unsure whether it is block or page blob storage.. I seem to recall that somewhere in the setup I set it (mistakenly) to block blob storage but now I'm not sure and see no indication of this.  There is already a 185GB backup file uploaded and it's size will keep increase beyond 200GB relatively soon.   How can I find out if I am going to hit the limit and if I am, is there a way to migrate or copy the data to storage with a 1TB limit?
