Azure Files Robocopy Error Access Denied when copying NTFS Permissions

Azure Files Currently does not have “Take Ownership” permission on the file share using Domain Auth So if robocopy requires setting the owner, it will fail with access denied.

“ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Copying NTFS to Destination Directory Access is Denied”.

Way around this is to mount the file share to a drive letter using storage account and key which uses a localuser which can be found per below

Make sure you run powershell as Admin , you will then also need to run cmd as Admin to be able to see the new drive share
