    You may sync SharePoint documents to Azure Fileshare storage using Power Automate. The following is a powerautomate template that copy files to Azure Blob Storage from SharePoint.

    https://powerautomate.microsoft.com/en-US/templates/details/9f3013836eb64243a04306a0133d25eb/copy-files-from-a-sharepoint-folder-to-a-azureblob-folder/

    Hope this helps

    I've used: ZeeDrive (https://www.thinkscape.com/Map-Network-Drives-To-Office-365-OneDrive/) - to do this. Maps a Sharepoint library as a mapped drive - in Azure Virtual Desktop.

    @Arif Usman Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    You can use Azure Data Factory to move data from Sharepoint to Azure File storage- https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/connector-sharepoint-online-list?tabs=data-factory

    You can verify that this is supported here- https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/copy-activity-overview#supported-data-stores-and-formats

    On the other hand, you can also move this data to Azure Blob STorage using Powerautomate- https://powerautomate.microsoft.com/en-US/templates/details/9f3013836eb64243a04306a0133d25eb/copy-files-from-a-sharepoint-folder-to-a-azureblob-folder/

    And then move data from Blob storage to File Storage using Azcopy- azcopy copy 'https://<storage-account-name>.<blob or dfs>.core.windows.net/<container-name>/<blob-path>' 'https://<storage-account-name>.file.core.windows.net/<file-share-name>/<file-name><SAS-token>'

    Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any more questions and we will be glad to assist you further. Thank you!
