    Is it possible to remove a record from archived DB in azure? 

    I have to delete customer data upon completion or termination of an engagement even it has in the archived DB

    Thanks.

  • Hello,

    I guess when you say archived database, you mean Azure SQL automated backups. Am I correct? Are you trying to meet GDPR requirements?


    Hope this helps.

    Assuming you are talking about the automatic backups then the answer is NO

    This is against the basic idea of backup!

    Even if you delete the entire database or the virtual server you cannot promise your client that the information does not exists, since it does (even if it does not directly available to you or your application)
