Azure blob storage upload fail

I have an issue uploading a large file to my azure storage blob thru azure storage explorer. The file is approx. 160GB. [155188-errorlog.txt][1] I have added part of the errorLog, some of the lines in the beginning and some in the end. Anyone an idea why it is not working?

    Looks like it's a timeout, and I too have personally experienced this issue with large files.

    You can do below,

    1. Upload through Azure Portal
    2. Use azcopy

    @Maarschalkerweerd, Luuk van Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum , Thank you for posting your query here!

    Based on the error log : AuthorizationPermissionMismatch|This request is not authorized to perform this operation using this permission.

    SASAuthorizationError : Issue could be related to SAS request that failed due to unauthorized access of data or an authorization failure. Can you regenerate the SAS token and try again

    Uploading files to blob endpoint Azure storage account via Storage Explorer and command line is failing with error "Response Status: 403 This request is not authorized to perform this operation using this resource type."

    Create a valid SAS token with permission to the targeted resources e.g. containers and objects. Can be achieved via portal, Storage Explorer etc. Create a user delegation SAS


    Tip: Create SAS with an expiry well before the actual start time, UTC format. Why? SAS takes time to kick in.

    If the issue still persist, It could be Insufficient permissions to access data abstraction.
