Access to Content Asset Folder to remove/edit files



This is in reference to a query on Content Asset folder physical location.

For instance, the below Url is part of content asset folder.

Is there any way to get to the physical path in episerver to either remove/edit the file.

Any help will be appreciated.

If you go to the appData folder - as defined in EpiserverFramework.config, and look for 187fe4d8e9534340b485da129a67c44c, you would find the folder

Thanks for your input that i was able to track the physical path of the images.
Although,I have a question following this.The Images for my application are stored in Azure Blob containers.Is there a way to get the complete URL as below:

I came across a similar post with your answer on the below link,

So ,my question is ,Is Episerver Commerce required for such situation coz i couldnt find CommerceMediaCollection anywhere in the content class?
Any alternative to getting the complete blob url?

Thanks in advance.

as long as you have the content link of the media, or if you have the virtual url, then you can use UrlResolver.Route to get the content. Still from

var media = UrlResolver.Current.Route(new UrlBuilder(Image)) as MediaData;

if (media != null)
    var fileBlob = media.BinaryData as FileBlob;

    if (fileBlob != null)
        var path = fileBlob.FilePath;

Thanks again for the input that was useful.However the output that i was able to get was epi.fx.blob://default/e5cbe831606546469adb38c6ff7ef4c3/9cbcdf68d54f407293b22eb1a788e72d.jpg
rather than
I tried digging the issue more through quick watch & was able to get the actual url through,
((EPiServer.Azure.Blobs.AzureBlob)fileBlob)._azureBlob.Uri.OriginalString but they are non public members.
Do i need to establish a connection to azure blob & use methods under azure blob or any other way.
I am new to this area & so please excuse if the above doesn't make sense.
The purpose of the above is to get all the Images within episerver Media for some remediation activity for all the sites within episerver.I am able to get the image list.The only issue is to get to the location of content asset folder which i was able to with your first suggestion.Now,its only the link on the azure site that i need to get to create a report for the same.


Finally i was able to get to the path to contentassets in case anyone is facing the similar issue. Navigating to


where 10574 is the content Id
