  • You should be able to sync two way with the sample - please go ahead and give it a try to see how it works.

  • Hi Daniell,

    The azure sync provider does allow for syncing both ways.  That is, you could actually put this azure provider as your source and point it to a different azure account as a destination is my understanding.  The issue would be that you would have to carefully update the actual metadata attributes of the files you put to azure if you wanted it to work.  The example you mention really has two separate pieces.

    The first piece is the azure provider itself.  The second piece is the console app that controls the sync with the Orchestrator. The example actually syncs from the sync frameworks's file provider to the azure provider built in the article.  Typically, you are only changes things on the local filesystem side, however if you were to run the console app from two different computers, you would see that one computer might update a file on azure, then when you run from the other computer, that change will actually get brought back down just as you would expect.

    I think that is what you mean by "the otherway around"

    Hope this helps.
