  1. How to delete an entire Azure table is quite easy.
  2. I get this question quite often. I normally would not create such a simple post.
    1. Most developers think they need to delete rows, one row at a time.
    2. But that isn't true.
  3. There is support for deleting a whole table.
  4. Here is the REST-based approach
  5. Here is the approach using the .NET libraries

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");
