Uploading of unsupported files get stuck

Nov 28, 2013 at 8:37 AM
I have a lot of files to upload (~250Gb). This includes filenames with "[" or "]" in them, which Azure does not support.

When I try to upload the files using the transfer utility, these files get stuck in the file list. They do not get uploaded, and do not get cleared. Eventually, all 10 worker roles get stuck and I have to manually cancel each file.

I would like the utility to do is :
  • catch when this happens
  • automatically cancel such files
  • produce a list of files that could not be uploaded
  • have the option to copy all these problem files into a new folder (making it easier to resolve this problem).
This is just a future request.
