Hello,
For testing purposes, I want to know the functionality of the Lock policy option of Immutable blob storage, so I lock the policy. Now I can't delete any blobs, containers, or even the entire storage.

Is there any way to recover from this situation? I understand the importance of immutability, but I just need a way to unlock the policy for now (strictly for testing!). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello Tú Nguyễn,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A community.

    I understand that you would like to know how to delete the Lock Retention policy on your blob storage.

    Regrettably, the Lock retention policy cannot be undone and data cannot be deleted until the retention date has expired.
