How to access blob root container

Nov 28, 2010 at 10:05 PM


I am using v4.0.0.6. I need to place a ClientAccessPolicy.xml file in the root blob container for my main silverlight app.

I read that root containers are supported in v4, but I find no way of getting to the root container.

When I try to create a container named $root I get an 'invalid name message'.

How can I access the root container?

Thank you!

Hello. We recently added name validation for container names and inadvertently this code caused the special $root container name to no longer be accepted for creating new blob containers. This has been corrected in version
