Moving Data Between Data Lakes

Jeffrey Verheul shows us how to use AdlCopy to migrate data from one Azure Data Lake to another:

Migrating data from one Data Lake to the other
We started out with a test version of a Data Lake, and this week I needed to migrate data to the production version of our Data Lake. After a lot of trial and error I couldn’t find a good way to migrate data. In the end I found a tool called AdlCopy. This is a command-line tool that copies files for you.
