Get Started

The Azure File Sync v7.2 update is currently being flighted to servers which are configured to automatically update when a new version becomes available. Once fighting completes, this update will be available on Microsoft Update and Microsoft Download Center. Flighting means that the release is offered to a limited number of servers first and expands to more severs gradually. It may not be offered to your server right away even if it’s configured to automatically update when a new version becomes available. To immediately install the Azure File Sync v7.2 update, manually download the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Installation instructions are documented in KB4490497.
