After testing (included a complimentary trial extension) Cloudberry Explorer for Windows Azure I sums up my experience to this: An Azure fundamental tool that every developer should and must add to its toolbox, once you try it, you will become a de facto Cloudberry fan

Just wonderful – Cloudberry Explorer Pro was able to download a VHD from Azure without errors, while all other tools were failing and corrupting the file.
I find myself using CloudBerry Explorer more frequently; primarily because of the more integrated view of the local file system.
The ease of use was amazing, and transferring my important data really couldn’t have been easier.
