I use Azure Storage, the File Service, and the Python SDK.
So I have "File A", and I simply wish to copy it to another location within the Fileshare.
How can I do this?
I already know most of the basics, functions, etc. - but I just can't seem to find a (documented) way to copy a file.

Thank you for posting here.
For copying file between locations within the file share, you can use the function copy_file of the class FileService of the module azure.storage.file.fileservice which wrapped the REST API Copy File.
As reference, here is my sample code.
from azure.storage import CloudStorageAccount from azure.storage.file import FileService account_name = '<your-storage-account>' account_key = '<your-storage-account-key>' source_share_name = '<source-share>' source_dir_name = '<source-dir>' source_file_name = '<source-file>' target_share_name = '<target-share>' target_dir_name = '<target-dir>' target_file_name = '<target-file>' account = CloudStorageAccount(account_name, account_key) file_service = account.create_file_service() # If target share & directory not exist file_service.create_share(target_share_name) file_service.create_directory(target_share_name, target_dir_name) # Get the url of the source file source_url = file_service.make_file_url(source_share_name, source_dir_name, source_file_name) # Copy File from source to target file_service.copy_file(target_share_name, target_dir_name, target_file_name, source_url)
Hope it helps.
