Here's how to delete an entire Azure table:

I get this question quite often. I normally wouldn't make such a simple post, but:

  1. Most developers think they need to delete rows one row at a time.
  2. And that isn't true.

There is, in fact, support for deleting a whole table.

Sample.cs

// Retrieve storage account from connection string
CloudStorageAccount storageAccount = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(
    CloudConfigurationManager.GetSetting("StorageConnectionString"));
  
// Create the table client
CloudTableClient tableClient = storageAccount.CreateCloudTableClient();
  
// Delete the table it if exists
tableClient.DeleteTableIfExist("people");

Cheers!
