Azure Storage Lifecycle Management - Remove Folders Rule
In Azure Storage Lifecycle Management, folders are not getting removed even though the blobs(files) are deleted after the given storage life cycle of tierToCool->tierToArchive->delete.
Lifecycle Management in Azure Storage only removes empty folders that match the condition defined in the lifecycle management policy rules. If you have soft deleted objects in an otherwise empty folder, the folder will be deleted after the retention period has expired and the soft deleted objects are permanently deleted.
Please let us know if you’re facing an issue with this behavior.
