  • Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft forums. We are pleased to answer your query.

    Have you created blob storage account or general-purpose storage account?

     

    If you have created blob storage account: Blob storage accounts support only block and append blobs, and not page blobs, files and tables.

     

    Which Azure Storage replication (LRS/ZRS/GRS/RAGRS) have you selected while creating a storage account?

     

    If you have selected ZRS: Zone-redundant storage (ZRS) is currently available only for block blobs, and is only supported for versions 2014-02-14 and later. Once you have created your storage account and selected ZRS, you cannot convert it to use to any other type of replication, or vice versa.
