    Hello@Sheikh Mudasir Bari - Welcome to Microsoft Q&A community forum!

    Short answer: YES :)

    Azure Backup now provides security features to help protect backup data even after deletion.

    One such feature is soft delete. With soft delete, even if a malicious actor deletes a backup (or backup data is accidentally deleted), the backup data is retained for 14 additional days, allowing the recovery of that backup item with no data loss. The additional 14 days of retention for backup data in the "soft delete" state don't incur any cost to you.

    Refer to the doc for more details -
