Creating a directory in a Filetable share is easy. It looks like this:
It’s hard to see, but this was a right click, New, Folder in the share from Windows Explorer.
However what about creating a directory from T-SQL? That’s almost as easy.
I created that folder above by running this code:
-- create a folder INSERT INTO dbo.Explorer ( name, is_directory ) VALUES ( 'Books', 1 );
I provided a name for my folder and then a 1 for the is_directory property. Once I ran this, the folder above appeared in my share.
Note that this works for folders in the root, but not nested folders. I’ll tackle that in another post.
