Using data box disk uploading data

Biswajeet Kumar 101 Reputation points


I have ordered data box disk to copy data form my local device to azure fileshare.

What I want to understand is, whether data box will create a new fileshare or can I have the option to upload it to already created fileshare?

    Data Box will not create a new share you will need to manually create this. For more information I recommend checking our step-by-step guide which is outlined here. Step 2 outlines creating the File Shares.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions or are still facing issues.
