I wanted to test the WORM blob storage feature on Azure.
I set the access policy with 146000 days and locked it.
Sadly I put 3 small objects to test the feature and now I cannot remove this test account.
Is there a possibility to delete the whole storage account or resource group or I need to wait 146000 days ?

    @xaf01
    Please refer to the FAQ for specific information on this. Container and storage account deletion are also not permitted if there are any blobs in a container that are protected by a legal hold or a locked time-based policy. If you recently created this, then the time-based retention policy may still be in an unlocked state, which would allow you to make the necessary changes. If your policy is locked then I suggest you reach out to subscription support for assistance.
