How to upload files to Azure Virtual Machine

Brass Contributor


I am going to deploy a Windows Server 2016 Virtual Machine in Azure. After that, I would like to upload to this VM about 400 GB of files which are stored in my local File System .


How can I achieve it?


I was thinking in the following ways:

  • Through copy-paste, but I would lose the control of the process if it fails.
  • Using but only offers the service if you upload files to Azure Blob Storage and I don't know if it is possible to use it with Virtual Machines.
  • With Data Box, but this is only for large amount of data and I only need to upload 400 GB.  
  • Using another soluction (eg 'VeeamFastSCPAzure')  


Any suggestion?


Thank you very much!

You could try looking at using Azure Files with Azure File Sync or Windows 2019 Storage Migration Service and Windows Admin Center.

Hi you can try the storage service migration  to migrate servers or / data  via Windows Admin Center

You can also use  AZ Copy to copy files .
