General availability: Soft delete for Azure Storage blobs

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Soft delete for Azure Storage blobs has entered general availability. The feature is available in all regions for public, government, and sovereign clouds.

When you turn on soft delete, you can save and recover your data when blobs or blob snapshots are deleted. This protection extends to blob data that's erased as the result of an overwrite.

For more details on the feature, see the Microsoft Azure blog and the complete soft delete documentation.
