    Considering using azcopy copy or azcopy sync in a crontab. This would allow you the upload the new or changed files directly to blob storage at your desired time. The below entry would copy the directory and its contents to blob storage every day at 1:00AM.

    0 1 * * azcopy copy '<local-directory-path>' 'https://<storage-account-name>.<blob or dfs><container-name>/myBlobDirectory' --recursive  

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any issues or further questions.

    Hi Deherman

    But AZCopy tool needs authentication each time when we need to copy data from VM to azure storage account and it is not happening automatically. i tried using azcopy in crontab but its not happening.

    Can you please suggest the solution to make it automate.
