Azure Virtual Directory - Version 0.0.8a (3/19/2012)

A program (or windows service) that registers a virtual directory on your local machine that is actually a gateway into an Azure Blob service. This will allow you to browse, create, modify and delete files directly in Windows Explorer, through a command prompt, or by any software that would be able to do so (as if it was writing to the local machine).

NEW SINCE 0.7a RELEASE
  • New structure for "Blob, Queue and Table" controllers.
    • So far, only Blob functionality is implemented.
  • Create directories (in the "Blob" controller)
    • These correspond to Azure Blob containers.

IN THE CURRENT RELEASE YOU CAN...
  • Mount multiple drives with the new Tray Icon GUI!
  • Browse and traverse directories
  • Delete directories (containers and virtual directories)
  • Delete files (blobs)
  • View and read and create files
    • Try to copy/paste a file into an existing container!

By the way - an example how to make a connection string can be seen in this MSDN article: Configuring Connection Strings - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/ee758697.aspx

Example: DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=storagesample;AccountKey=KWPLd0...beIHy5l/Yhg==
