Hello,

We have a data lake with folders "Landing Zone" and "Target Zone". Whenever a new blob is added in "Landing Zone". we want that blob to be copied into "Target Zone" automatically. We know we can do that using Azure Data Factory - but is there any other way to do that ? Something like trigger on data lake/storage account to copy newly added file(s) to another container/folder. We are exploring Azcopy also.

Appreciate your insightful response. Thank you!!

    Hi @anil kumar , do you mean datafile added in to the landing zone blob? If that is the case you can use event based trigger so that as soon as file

    being arrived in landing zone blob , the event based trigger can be kicked off. You can also explore logic apps to monitor the change and eventually

    pipeline gets trigger when the change being takes place. Thanks
