At present we are taking azure file share snapshot daily at 12.00 PM every night. We are using the below script to take the snapshot automatically using powershell:
$context = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName jgifileshare -StorageAccountKey xxxxx $share = Get-AzStorageShare -Context $context -Name filesharename $snapshot = $share.Snapshot()
Above script works like a charm but I am not sure How I can modify the script to check the old snapshot and delete it automatically after creating the new snapshot. Basically what I am trying to setup is I want to set a snapshot retention policy. Now I have been thinking to delete the snapshot older than 30 days.
