  2. Allow selective deletion of snapshots in any and all azure products.

    Backups / snapshots should not be auto deleted on deletion of the files resources. There should be an option to do so, but should not be forced on deletion of the resource. Default should be to retain with the option to delete, or maybe a subcommand that implies the delete . Not simply removal of one forces the other.

  3. Automatically mount lvm partitions instead of manual intervention

    Currently, in azure backup process, if we want to do file recovery from logical volumes, we have to mount lvm's and then access files.

  4. Better restore options

    The "Instant File Recovery from Cloud using Azure Backup" which is in the preview is a horrible way to restore files. Since Azure Backup retains the files and folder permissions it is not possible to restore files and folders that have been restricted unless you know to the precise path of the file. Most users do not know this path due to mapped drives and/or shares that do not reflect the true path on the files server.

    Since the mounted VHD files from Azure Backup is not a writable media it is not possible to reset the permissions, thus you…

  5. More Snapshots and longer (non hack) retention times

    We need the ability to store daily snapshots for at least 10 years vs the current 200 snapshot limit. So at least 3650 snapshots need to be supported for this to be a good solution for the enterprise, a lot of us have Legal requirements for long term retention.

    Right now I have DPM set up in the Azure cloud to do this which is kind of silly. I've had to go from on Prem file storage to Azure Files, to a VM for the files to a DPM server to backup with retention. I'm paying for storing the same…

  7. Is restoration possible even after your azure in open credits are over?

    My Azure in Open credits is over. Soon I will be adding credits to the subscription. For my subscription, I have only one service i.e. Azure Backup for Files and Folders. Is it possible for me to restore files even though my credits are over?
