Published date: February 24, 2022

Low recovery point objective (RPO) is a key requirement for Azure Files holding business-critical data. Azure Backup enables you to achieve recovery point objective for up to four hours using Azure Files snapshot-based backup solution. You can leverage the multiple backups per day feature to create or modify a backup policy to take multiple snapshots of your file share. This feature allows you to define a backup schedule aligning to your working hours when there are frequent updates to your Azure Files content.

In addition to the preview capability that allowed you to configure multiple backups from the Azure portal, you can now also use Powershell or Azure CLI to create a backup policy that triggers multiple snapshots a day as per your defined schedule.
