Currently it's possible to take COPY-ONLY backups to long term blob storage. However, this is not supported for databases that are encrypted with TDE unless you use the BYOK (Bring Your Own Key) feature (Which is only in preview). Are there any plans to make COPY-ONLY backups possible without using BYOK?
