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.
