this is my code and i get an error that the filename/ directory is incorrect. The file does exist in that directory. I want to upload this file to my azure blob storage.

private static void UploadFileToBlobStorage()
        var localFilePath = "C:\\Users\\LK\\source\repos\dsd-ica-perf\\src\\et.ure.ica.Perf\\PerfTest.cs";
        BlobServiceClient blobServiceClient = new BlobServiceClient(storageConnStr);

        BlobContainerClient containerClient = blobServiceClient.GetBlobContainerClient("perfTest");

        Console.WriteLine("Uploading to Blob storage as blob:\n\t {0}\n", blobServiceClient.Uri);

        BlobClient blobClient = containerClient.GetBlobClient("PerfTest");

        using FileStream uploadingFileStream = File.OpenRead(localFilePath);


What I have tried:

I tried changing up the localFilePath in different ways also googled but nothing seemed to resolve the issue.

The issue here is with your string containing the path to the file:

Notice that you've escaped some backslashes, but not others. You need to escape all backslashes otherwise C# will convert those into characters (ie. \r gets converted into a carriage-return):
// Either escape all explicitly

// Or escape using the @ symbol

I tried using both strings and now i get the error that the specified resource name contains invalid characters

That sounds like your code isn't able to find the correct container. See this StackOverflow question[^] which seems to explain the problem.
