CloudBlobContainer.Delete Method (BlobRequestOptions)
Updated: April 24, 2013
Deletes the container using a conditional request based on the BlobRequestOptions that you specify. Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)
When a container is deleted, a container with the same name cannot be created for at least 35 seconds; the container may not be available for more than 35 seconds if the service is still processing the request. While the container is being deleted, attempts to create a container of the same name will fail with the service returning additional error information indicating that the container is being deleted. All other operations, including operations on any blobs under the container, will fail until the container has been deleted.
