Using a File Storage Drive in a Running Region

Once a File Storage drive has been configured and is available to the worker roles, the region can be configured to use it, in a similar way to an on-premises deployment.

Note: You must use the Classic type of Azure Storage with Enterprise Server for .NET.

For example, to use the drive to store application DLLs, maps, etc, and configure the region to load them, do the following:

For example, if you configured the File Storage drive to use drive letter M:, you might configure the Application Program Paths node to contain m:\programs.
