Hi Team, Get your old Q&A page back to live. THIS really pisses off. I am unable hit enter and go to next line. This is horrible. Coming to my scenario, I would like to know the IOPS available for File Share and when we increase the size, will it increase its IOPS. What are my options to copy the contents of Fileshare for my DR region. Also, how can I monitor the folders if it goes missing or deleted. Lastlyz where are my questions which were raised in the past. They are all gone... Get them back whoever has done these changes.

    The IOPS available for an Azure File Share is determined by the number of IOPS provisioned for the storage account that the File Share is associated with. The more IOPS you provision, the higher the performance of the File Share will be. However, keep in mind that increasing the size of the storage account will not increase the IOPS. You will need to specifically provision more IOPS.

    To copy the contents of an Azure File Share to a different region for disaster recovery purposes, you can use Azure File Sync. This service allows you to sync your files to another Azure File Share in a different region. This way, if an outage occurs in your primary region, you can failover to the secondary region and access your files from there.

    You can also use Azure Backup to backup the files in your Azure File Share to another region. This will allow you to restore your files in case of an outage or data loss.

    To monitor the folders in an Azure File Share for missing or deleted files, you can use Azure Monitor. This service allows you to set up alert rules that will notify you when specific conditions are met, such as when a file is deleted or a folder is empty. Additionally, you can use Azure Log Analytics to monitor the files and folder activity, and have a clear view of all the operations that happened on the fileshare.
