Invalid blob flatfile name while upgrading to a storage account with Azure Data Lake Gen2 capabilities

Linden 1 Reputation point

I'm attempting to upgrade to a storage account with Azure Data Lake Gen2 capabilities. The validation reports these errors on two files:

Invalid blob flatname found and Invalid strings in the blobname: // ","

I would like to delete these two files but can not find them in the Azure Storage Explorer. What is the best way to clean this up so I can upgrade the storage account?

    @Linden Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I understand that you are unable to upgrade to ADLS Gen2 storage account due to issues with Blobname being invalid.

    I see that if you try to access these files using storage explorer, you cannot find them. Are you able to access them via the Portal or CLI/Powershell?

    Get a Blob by Blob Name- Get-AzureStorageBlob -Container "ContainerName" -Blob blob* or

    Remove it using Remove-AzStorageBlob:

    Remove-AzStorageBlob -Container "ContainerName" -Blob "BlobName"

    Please let me know. Thank you!
