Is a deleted blob also deleted on the other region when using (RA-GRS) replication?

I use Azure Storage with Read-access geo-redundant storage (RA-GRS). I understand based on this link that the replication copies data synchronously three times within a single physical location in the primary region. It then copies data asynchronously to a single physical location in the secondary region. But I would like to know what happen with deleted blobs.

Is a deleted blob also deleted from other locations in the primary region and in the secondary region?

Hi RodrigoSedani-7503,

When you delete an Azure Storage blob all redundant copies and related blob snapshots will be deleted. However, if you have enabled the "Soft Delete" functionality then the information will only be soft deleted and can be recovered from a erroneous situation, such as an accidental overwrite. The Azure infrastructure automatically manages the redundant copies for you so you don't need to do anything additional when taking file actions. For more information on the Soft Delete functionality see the link below:

Seems like it may be possible to recover the deleted account, based on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-account-recover
