Force Azure File Sync tiering

If you are encountering issues with Azure File Sync, or you just want to force the process so that you can free some space now, follow the commands shown below:

#Import the commands
Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Azure\StorageSyncAgent\StorageSync.Management.ServerCmdlets.dll"

#Force the synchronization of the folder you have specified in the sync group
Invoke-StorageSyncCloudTiering -Path <sync_group_path>

If you want to get some logs out of the operation for troubleshooting, send these commands in a separate PowerShell window before launching the script above:

cd C:\
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path C:\AZfslogs
cd "C:\Program Files\Azure\StorageSyncAgent"
Import-Module .\AFSDiag.ps1
Debug-AFS -OutputDirectory C:\AZfslogs -KernelModeTraceLevel verbose -UserModeTraceLevel verbose

You can terminate the command once the sync is concluded and get the logs in the C:\AZfslogs folder.
