We are investigating data migration from a NAS to Azure Files. WE setup an Azure Files Share using premium storage for lower latency. We are attempting to send the data in bulk to the Azure storage with the Azure Data Box Gateway. When we try to set up the setting in the portal to connect to the file share it does not appear in the list of storage for our subscription.

Is there a way to connect the Azure Data Box Gateway to an Azure Premium Storage containing an Azure Files Share?
