  • If the main purpose is to change the geo-replication type of your Azure Storage account then you can simply change it from the Azure Portal, Azure PowerShell or one of the Azure Storage client libraries. There is no need to backup the data locally.

    Note that if you change from GRS to LRS, there is no additional cost, but your data is deleted from the secondary location.
