I just looked at the code for the Azure Blob storage backend and the used SDK. It seems the SDK allows the usage of Blob snapshots with a single command, but the backend has no reference to it.
It doesn't seem I'm able to pass any custom commands to the underlying SDK from the rclone CLI, so I cannot 'finish' a backup by creating a snapshot. Is this possible at all or do I actually need a 'feature request' to use snapshots?
Versions won't work, afaik, as I am trying to clone an entire interdependent directory structure at a specific point in time. So I would have just frozen it, cloned it and then, after the cloning was successful, created a snapshot:
That way the remote structure would always be coherent.
Sadly, it isn't for my employer. With custom commands I meant for example Graph API calls or something in the context of the rclone process, for example before or after the clone.
