Azure File Share Recovery Without Soft Delete

NH, Soheil 21 Reputation points

I was wondering whether anybody knows how to recover about 8 TB of deleted files and folders on Azure File Share that do not have soft delete active.

Is there any way to recover deleted data like that? I did not get a snapshot or backup.

I insanely was busy working on the project and depositing output data there, for DAYS, from multiple PCs, at the same time, and I never ever thought it could possibly happen.
