Limitations in Azure File Shares?

Copper Contributor

Hi All,


we are about to migrate a generic file server from on-prem to Azure File Shares. The overall size is around 8 TB so 2 x 5 TB Standard share would cover the requirements, however I find confusing information online in terms of the maximum supported files. 

We have around 4.5 million files in around 3 million folders (constantly growing), and just wanted to double check if this would cause any issues in Azure Storage Account/File Share (SMB)


.Thank you,
