Azure File Share sync between two azure subscriptions

Hi Azure Team!

I have two azure file shares (A and B) in two different subscriptions (sub_A, sub_B). I would like to synchronized those file shares. It means that in both file shares will be the same files and file share content will be updated once a day. (azcopy copy cannot meet the expectations, because I upload files into file share once a day) What is the best option for this?

    @Urszula Gryczan Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    If the subscription under which the file share is deployed is associated with the same Azure AD tenant as the Azure AD DS deployment to which the VM is domain-joined, you can then access Azure file shares using the same Azure AD credentials. The limitation is imposed not on the subscription but on the associated Azure AD tenant.

    The Cloud Endpoint (File Share/Storage Account) and Storage Sync Service can be in separate subscriptions but must be in the same AAD tenant.

    Hope this helps!
