Add File Storage Account backups or snapshots
We are currently making use of the file storage options in a Storage Account but have no method (outside of mounting the endpoint to a Windows Server) of backing up the files stored within.
Please implement either snapshotting or integration with the backup service
Thanks for giving us feedback on Azure Files! We recently released the preview of this feature in October 2017, here are some links to check it out:

- Share snapshot documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-snapshots-files
We really appreciate your help in making Azure Files better! Please don’t hesitate to give us more feedback or reach out if you have any questions!

Not having this functionality is stopping me from using storage accounts in general. Just waiting on this and then I can get rid of my file server.
Snapshot or Integration with Azure Backup Services would be excellent. Thanks.

Integration with Azure Recovery Services (File and Folders backup) would be ideal.
