  1. Content-Encoding should be "gzip", not "GZIP"

    Uploaded blobs are automatically gzipped, which is nice. But .NET does not understand Content-Encoding: GZIP. It should be lowercase for better compatibility.

    • Enable blob metadata editing for an entire "tree"

      I have a large number of files under a container in a tree structure and I need to edit the cache control metadata property on ALL of them. Looks like I'm going to have to write my own app to do this. Would be great if I could somehow do this in Azure Management Studio.

      • beyond compare

        I have several times wished for a comparison utility similar to Beyond Compare that would work on files in BLOB storage and/or files on in PC folders.

        • Search for a blob storage container by name by typing its name

          I have many blob storage containers (thousands) named with GUID. Finding a particular one is very long as there's no way to search for a blob storage name.

          I like to start typing its name and automatically be moved to the first match.... like in windows explorer.

          Similar to:

              • Quick delete of large blob directories

                Deleting folders with large numbers of blobs can take a long time (I just completed deleting a folder with 40,000 blobs that took about 20 minutes to delete). Any speedup would be appreciated. Thanks!

                  • Keep focus of selected tab (i.e. Metadata) when navigating blobs

                    When presented with the list of blobs in a container, if I select the Metadata tab and then navigate to the next blob, the Properties tab gets focus. I see these as independent navigations. Whichever tab is selected should stay selected regardless of which blob I select.

                    • Force delete of Blobs and Containers

                      I would like to see an option added for force deletion of Blobs, which automatically breaks the lease on a Blob and then deletes all the selected Blobs. Now you have to select each Blob individually, break the lease on each individual Blob, before you can delete all selected Blobs at once.

                      I would like to see the same functionality added for Containers, where first all Blobs are forcefully deleted, after which the Container is deleted. Now you have to first delete all the Blobs and then delete the Container, which may still have a lease on it as well…

                      • Support setting content-disposition on blob properties

                        Azure now supports content-disposition header for blobs. I need to be able to set that in the blob's propertites in AMS.

                        • An option to force the upload with LowerCase name

                          I have seen that when “Upload” a file as Block Blob, then to download it from an http URL it is strictly required to be precise with case sensitive characters.
                          May be usefoul if in the “Azure Explorer” an option allows to upload each file name in lowercase.

                          An example:

                          Source
                          Windows 8
                          MyPicture.jpg

                          Upload
                          Azure
                          mypicture.jpg

                          URL
                          http://mywebsite.com/picture/mypicture.jpg

                            • Manage blob listing view by container and not as a global setting

                              Given the nature of data in each container, I prefer to view some of them hierarchically but with others I prefer the flat view. As it is now, it's a little bit inconvenient to visit the Options page to switch the view type, mostly after waiting a long time for a container to load just to realize it wasn't a slow network connection but forgot to change the flat list in a huge container. Maybe it's not the best approach, but it would be good enough for me if the software remembered the view type used the last time I…

                                We store many thousands of files in a blob container. It would be good to have an option to only retrieve the most recently modified files or to retrieve the files in date order.

                                  • Reinstate Copy and Move Right Click Actions

                                    In CloudStorage studio you could right click a blob container, select copy or move, select a destination container, and whether to copy blobs already in the destination.
                                    Now, the only available option is via drag and drop on the right pane. It seems useful functionality that could remain in the same place has been removed for no good reason.

                                    This is a problem because

                                    a) it's easy to make a mistake - drag and drop is not good for this type of activity on a production system
                                    b) the option to copy only if missing is also very useful, and…

                                    • Please improve accuracy of Completed tab for vhd copies

                                      The vhd copy functionality is very helpful, especially between storage accounts. When a large copy is executed, though, the status indicates it is 100% complete well before it has finished. Errors occur when trying to use the copied file too soon. My workaround is to always try to rename the copy before I use it...if rename causes a "conflict" error then I know the copy is not yet complete. Would be nice to see an accurate status instead. Thank you!
