BlobStorage account type is not supported for backup?

Melby, Patrick W 1 Reputation point

I am trying to create an Operational Backup for an Azure Storage account of type BlobStorage, NOT General Purpose v2. Documentation here:

I get errors hinting that I need to upgrade my storage account to General Purpose 2.

Is GP2 required for backups?
