Soft delete for blobs capability for Azure Data Lake Storage is now generally available

Published date: 16 December, 2021

Soft delete for blobs capability for Azure Data Lake Storage is now generally available. This feature protects files and directories from accidental deletes by retaining the deleted data in the system for a specified period of time. During the retention period, you can restore a soft-deleted object, i.e. file or directory, to its state at the time it was deleted. After the retention period has expired, the object is permanently deleted. 

All soft deleted files and directories are billed at the same rate as active ones until the retention period has expired. 

This capability is now generally available in all public regions.
