Most Azure cloud explorers allow to upload only one file at a time and one must construct a folder structure for it. Can AzureMate upload many files at a time?


Yes.
In AzureMate you can use both ways.
You can select, using a folder picker, a Root Folder full of files and sub folders of files and send it for upload to a selected Blob Container. All files in the root folder are uploaded to the root of the container and the files in the sub folders and their sub folders are prefixed with the name of the folder they come from, therefore preserving the folder structures.

Or, you can type in a folder structure you require and then you can select, using a file picker, one or more files to upload. The files are uploaded to a selected blob container with a folder structure you typed in.

Couple of Azure cloud explorers we use are unable to paginate data and, consequently, it takes a long time to see the data. Does AzureMate paginate its data downloads?


Yes.
AzureMate implements pagination on both, containers and their data. The pagination is settable by the user. The only data that is not paged are Queue messages as Azure cloud system implements the ability to read only 32 messages (reading does not dequeue messages) from any Queue Container at a time.

I noticed there is only 64 bit edition of AzureMate available for installation. Is there a 32 bit edition?


No.
AzureMate is available only in 64 bit edition. But if you have any special needs, Softhard Solutions may be able to accommodate you. Check with us with your need.

Can AzureMate process the Queue messages?


No.
AzureMate can dequeue up to 32 messages at a time. The dequeuing process simply dequeues a message and deletes it. But AzureMate can save a message for you in to a text file and you can do your own processing as necessary.
