Azure Website Downloader

This is a Console application and not a regular Umbraco package.
Using the console app you can download an Umbraco site with its complete file- and folder structure from Windows Azure Blob Storage to your local machine.

Because the Windows Azure Accelerator for Umbraco creates zero byte files to represent a folder in a blob, existing tools tend to fail when trying to download a site, which has been deployed to Windows Azure. This simple console app will allow you to download your website for backup purposes.

Before running the app you need to configure it with your Azure Storage credentials.
Unzip the file and look for the following file: DownloadSite.exe.config

"Container" - this is the container of your websites. Default value is "sites".
"SiteName" - this is the name (typically hostname) of the site you want to download. This setting is not currently used, but the idea is to limit the download process to a single website.
"LocalDownloadPath" - this is the path to a local folder. Default value is "c:\temp", but can of course be changed.
"StorageAccountName" - this is the name of your Azure storage account.
"StorageAccountKey" - this is the (primary or secondary) key for your Azure storage account.
