    Thank you for your feedback. We would like to get more feedback about this item before we prioritize. Is the ask here to replicate a storage account on-demand ? Or have a mechanism to always keep two or more storage accounts in sync ?

    Meanwhile, to unblock some of our users we have published a sample that copies blobs from an account to another account: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/scripts/storage-common-transfer-between-storage-accounts?toc=%2fpowershell%2fmodule%2ftoc.json

    What we need is some way to take "snapshots" of the storage account at certain points in time. Either automatically or on demand.

    Syncing is Not what we are looking for. Because with syncing, the mistake will propagate which defeats the purpose of having a backup.

    The PowerShell script suggested above by Microsoft Azure Storage Team did not work for me because I was trying to copy a large number of blobs (about 300,000). The script was so slow and I was getting many timeout errors.

    Thank you for your feedback. We view this ask as a set of related features.

    Soft delete for blobs enables you to save and recover your data where blobs or blob snapshots are deleted. It does not protect against container or account deletion. This feature is currently generally available. You can see the announcement here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/soft-delete-for-azure-storage-blobs-ga/ and the full documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-soft-delete

    Object versioning will also offer object-level protection, and will offer a few incremental improvements to soft delete. Specifically, it will make recovery of deleted data easier. This feature is planned for the coming year.

    Container soft delete will protect against container-level deletion and modification. This feature is planned for the coming year as well.

    Native support for blob backup will protect against account-level deletion and modification, and is currently on our backlog.

    We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your…

    How come this request is 2 years old and it does not seem to be getting much interest? You people do not need to backup your data?!!!

    It would be great if all the data in the storage account can be periodically uploaded to an FTP server. I prefer to keep some backups outside Azure in case something goes wrong with the Azure subscription.
