    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    You have multiple containers and files in a parent container which has to be copied wholly using azcopy., pls confirm if my understanding is correct. If yes use like below with "recursive" flag.

    If this is not you are looking for, pls elaborate your ask.

    azcopy copy "" "" --recursive=true

    @Jaanvi Dhariwal Adding more information to the above response!

    You can copy blobs, directories, and containers between storage accounts by using the AzCopy v10 command-line utility.

    To see examples for other types of tasks such as uploading files, downloading blobs, and synchronizing with Blob storage, see the links presented in the Next Steps section of this article.

    AzCopy uses server-to-server APIs, so data is copied directly between storage servers. These copy operations don't use the network bandwidth of your computer.

    Transfer data with AzCopy and file storage

    AzCopy uses server to server APIs when copying data between storage accounts and should not use the local bandwidth of your computer. It is currently the fastest way to migrate data between accounts. To increase performance, you can try decreasing the logging level, separating the copy into multiple operations, and turn off length checking. See Optimize for large numbers of small files for more information.
