Hi we seem to be experiencing regular issues trying to upload files to the East US containers from our London office, using the WindowsAzure.Storage assembly (version=

I don't know if this could be to do with the fact we are in the UK, or throttling of some kind, or something else.

Behaviour is that small files upload okay, but larger files (e.g. 70MB or more) will fail with a StorageException error .

This is because the blockIDs which are being generated are not of the same length. As per documentation – -- For a given blob, all block IDs must be the same length, but the block contents can be of different size.

Fixing this via padding or fixed length digest fixes the upload issue.
