I have a blob container in Azure called UploadedFiles. It has folders and the folder has some blobs. Even after all the blobs are deleted,the folder is still visible. How that folder will disappear?

CloudBlobDirectory directory = GetContainerHandle(eContainer).GetDirectoryReference(strVirtualDirectory);

foreach (CloudBlockBlob blockBlob in directory.ListBlobs()) {
    blockBlob.Delete();           
}

    @SIGMA P35 Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I understand that you are having issues where after deleting all the Blobs insider a container, the container stays in the account, is that right?

    Deleting the Blobs does not delete the container automatically, you will need to delete the container manually-

    Is this what you are looking for? Please do let me know. Thank you!
