Longer Term Retention of Backups for Azure File Shares
I have set up an Azure File Share and configured a daily backup. But the retention period for daily backup is only 120 days. I need a way to retain backups for a longer period of time for compliance and archival purposes. Quarterly backups would be fine. Is there a way I can backup a file share or a snapshot of a file share to regular Azure Backup with the availability of its longer retention periods?

same. I need better retention and then I'm aggressively rolling this out!

I need this too. Our plan is migrate from StorSimple to Azure File Sync, but the long term retention for backups of Azure File Share is a prereq to do that.
