Azure Recovery Point Deletion

Bujar Lushta 26 Reputation points

Dear Support Community,

I have a Azure subscription where I cannot delete a Restore Point Colection or a Restore Point under that collection for a VM that no longer exists.


The resource was not found, it may have been deleted. If this was launched from a pinned tile on the dashboard, it should be removed.

Can you please adivise how can I delete a Restore Point Colection for a VM that no loger existis.

In advance thank you

    Hi Bujar,

    Do you have soft delete option selected ? If yes then you will have to deactive the feature and try again to remove the VM or restorepoint. Is your VM also deallocated or deleted? Then the option will be restore the VM and delete the restorepoint and shutdown the VM and delete it.

    Check before you start options in this page -

    Hope this helps.
