    Thanks for posting your query here!

    1. Once the Subscription is cancelled, the data will be kept for a month. You will have one month grace period to re-activate the Subscription and post which you get 2 months of data retention. Once grace period is over, you can only download your data.
    2. It is recommended not to run two backups solutions at the same time.

    @jake After you cancel, your services are disabled. That means your virtual machines are de-allocated, temporary IP addresses are freed, and storage is read-only.

    After your subscription is canceled, Microsoft waits 30 - 90 days before permanently deleting your data in case you need to access it or you change your mind. We don't charge you for keeping the data. To learn more, see Microsoft Trust Center - How we manage your data.

    You need to contact Azure Subscription support , it's free, and it's the best choice for you and they can help you on this scenario.
    If you still find any difficulties, please let me know.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
