Recover deleted container RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I need to recover a deleted container, the docs say it could be possible if the container was deleted less than 14 days ago and the account is at least GRS but doesn't say how to do it.

    How can I do that?

  • Hi

    You cannot recover container whenever it is deleted. (I would suggest creating Locks to avoid such accidental deletions).

    However, coming to your issue - You can to restore the blob files if they were deleted but configured Soft Delete option. If it's configured, you can see when you check "Show deleted blobs" there will be an option to undelete in its properties section. 

    Below documentation explains the same in detail with the screen shots.


    Hope this is helpful !!

    Thank you

  • Note: If it is production data that got deleted, I would highly recommend reaching out to Azure Support immediately. We may be able to recover the data if not too much time has elapsed.
