In large enterprises, we have seen that the limit of 5 TiB Azure File Storage is not sufficient, and we sometimes need a huge file share due to backup or another requirement.
However, as you all may know that by default, Azure standard file shares can span only up to 5 TiB, although the share limit can be increased to 100 TiB. To do this, a large file share feature must be enabled at the storage account level. Premium storage accounts (FileStorage storage accounts) don’t have the large file share feature flag as all premium file shares are already enabled for provisioning up to the full 100 TiB capacity.
