Access database recovery / backup configuration in Azure Portal
Access database recovery / backup configuration in Azure Portal similar to configuring a recovery services vault and retention policy for Azure SQL databases.
Currently I cannot find any UI in the portal that would allow me to configure automatic backups.
Please refer to this UserVoice item to track long-term retention of backups: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/597982/suggestions/34976803

This is a great topic which I never read before. While using Access Database Application we have to keep this on mind. Other then this I am going to share a useful tutorial based on Access Files Corruption and recovery. Visit to visit: https://bit.ly/2HqsrVC
Sean, are you looking specifically for long-term retention? Otherwise, as mentioned previously, the service itself takes automatic backups.

If you're connecting your Azure Database to a App Service, App Service levels of Standard/Premium, will automatically include the database within the backup service if you have included the connection string within the settings of the App Service.

Sean, do you mean SQL 'long-term backup retention' feature?
If not, could you catch a snapshot for me for reference? Thank you!
Backup configuration is automatic through the platform itself so no configuration is necessary. Full backups are daily with up to 5 minute snapshots throughout the day.
