Azure Storage Explorer Running Slow

Darrell Kent 66 Reputation points

Azure Storage Explorer seems to be running very slowly - in other words much slower then might be caused by the delay through the RDP connection. For example, it takes several minutes simply to select a file for download. it seemed to work fine yesterday. I am running 1.18.1.

    @Darrell Kent Azure Storage Explorer Running Slow means are you facing any issue in downloading or uploading the data?

    If the issue is related to tool, I would recommended to un-install and re-install the Storage Explorer tool! Azure Speed test

    For testing purpose you can also use azcopy tool and check the performance

    Storage Explorer version 1.18.1. Notable changes in this release compared to 1.17.0 include a refreshed connect experience, enhanced SAS support for ADLS Gen2, and improvements to startup performance. This version also hotfixes several issues introduced in 1.18.0. For more details on all of these changes and more, continue reading below.

    Hope this helps!
