    @SY_MSO Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    If you have connected the Azure Blob Storage container using below mentioned option(Blob SAS URL) then you will <Storage account>(SAS) . You need to Detach the container. You won't get delete option here, since you have connected the blob container using SAS. If they regenerate the SAS URL you cannot connect/attach back, previous SAS URL/token would be expired.

    Additional information: If you create a New folder in Azure Blob Storage account->Container This will create a virtual folder. A virtual folder does not actually exist in Azure until you paste, drag or upload blobs into it. To paste a blob into a virtual folder, copy the blob before creating the folder.

    Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.

    Azure Blob storage does not have a concept of folders and everything inside the container is considered a blob including the folders.
