    UmbracoFileSystemProviders.Azure - Server.MapPath

    Hi we're using azure blob storage but have a need to pull the file from disk to stamp it in to a PDF. Just wondering how to obtain a disk path for a given media file?

    hi

    the best thing to do is to use the IFileSystem interface to access the media folder. this abstracts away the storage system underneath.

    see: https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/extending/custom-file-systems

    you get the media folder with :

    IFileSystem fileSystem = FileSystemProviderManager.Current.GetUnderlyingFileSystemProvider("media");
    

    and one you have that you can do most of the same things you can with System.IO. except it will happen wherever your media is stored.
