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.

Let me show you how easy it is.

Download & Install
AdlCopy needs to be installed on your machine. You can find the download here. By default the tool will install the files in “C:\Users\\Documents\AdlCopy\”, but this can be changed in the setup wizard.
