What if I have not noted down the location of the disk before migrating it to managed disk and now I am unable to delete old disk as unable to locate RRS feed

  • Question

  • What if I have not noted down the location of the original disk before migrating unmanaged disk to managed disk and now I am unable to delete old (original) disk as unable to locate it in the azure portal > storage.

    Please help !

    Let me find the storage account and blob of original VHDs post migration.

  • I guess, I found the source (original) VHD location.

    As we go to new VHD which is managed disk, it provides us the source location of old VHD which needs to be deleted as because "The original VHDs and the storage account used by the VM before conversion are not deleted. They continue to incur charges. To avoid being billed for these artifacts, delete the original VHD blobs after you verify that the conversion is complete."
