Use CloudBerry Drive to create a local mapped network drive to Azure Blob Storage

Use CloudBerry Drive to create a local mapped network drive directly to a Microsoft Azure Blob Storage account. This way, files in the Azure Blob Storage can be directly worked on from Windows Explorer and are accessible by other applications that can read mapped drives. Folders and files can be dragged and dropped to the mapped network drive and instantly saved in the Azure Blob Storage container without having to directly access the Azure Portal.

“Using CloudBerry Drive, you can mount your Microsoft Azure account as a network drive to your Windows computer and use it just like any other hard drive.” –

These instructions assume that a Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Account has already been created. Retrieve the Azure Blob Storage Acccount name and an access key, for use in configuring CloudBerry Drive on a local client machine. We found this very simple to install and it worked seamlessly with Azure Blob Storage.
