@SamuelRuth-8813 Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

Soft delete for blobs capability for Azure Data Lake Storage protects files and directories from accidental deletes by retaining the deleted data in the system for a specified period of time. During the retention period, you can restore a soft-deleted object, file or directory, to its state at the time it was deleted. After the retention period has expired, the object is permanently deleted.

You can learn more about this capability and how to use it here - Soft delete for blobs concept, How to enable soft delete for blobs , How to manage and restore soft-deleted blobs.

All soft deleted files and directories are billed at the same rate as active ones until the retention period has expired.

This capability is now available in limited preview globally in all Azure regions. To enroll in the preview, please complete this form.

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