Uploading Files and Folders to Azure VMs

Previous page Next page Print this Topic

Table of contents

You can upload files and folders from on-premises to Azure VMs. There are two options for uploading files and folders:

You can upload files and folders manually.

Use this option to quickly upload one folder, one file, or several files that reside in the same folder.

You can create jobs to upload files and folders automatically.

Use this option to upload several files and folders, schedule upload, or run PowerShell scripts before and/or after upload.

When you upload files and folders to Azure VMs, original ownership and ACL information is not retained. Uploaded files and folders inherit their permissions from the parent folder. To learn how permissions are handled when you copy files and folders in Microsoft Windows, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/310316.

Prerequisites

Before you upload files and folders, check the following prerequisites:

An Azure VM where you want to upload files and folders must be connected to Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and running. For details on configuring connections to Azure VMs, see Connecting Azure VMs.

Files and folders to upload must be accessible from the machine where Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure is installed. For example, they can be located on a local disk, CD/DVD drive, mounted ISO or USB drive, and so on. To upload files and folders from a network location (such as a network share or a mapped drive), you must grant network access permissions to the LocalSystem account on the machine where Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure runs.
