Azure file sync back to server???


  • Hi

    I have recently set up Azure file sync and my local fileserver files have synced to azure all good. Mapped drive from PC to azure files I can see the files also, so all good.

    My problem is changes or creations of files does not seem to sync from azure files back to my local files server.

    Is Azure file sync a two way thing between onsite and Azure? Or can it be?

    Thanks Neil

  • I believe that if there are any changes to files directly in Azure files, hten it can take up to 24 hours for those changes to be synced back to on-prem

  • If you make changes directly to the Azure file share, you need to wait for the change enumeration job to complete and any file changes detected will sync to the on-premises servers. The change enumeration job runs every 24 hours and the duration is based on the number of files in the Azure file share. We're planning to improve the frequency of the change enumeration job.

    Note: If you make changes on the on-prem file servers, the changes should sync immediately once the file handle(s) are closed.

  • HI,

    Yes I can confirm that the files do sync from Azure back to the file server over a 24 hour period. And also that the sync from on prem to azure is instant! When the frequency of the sync increases this will be a great help?

    Any ide how often the sync will be increased to, will it also be instant!
