  • How do I move from a premium storage account to a standard storage account?

    Follow these steps:

    Create a standard storage account. (Or use an existing standard storage account in your subscription.)

    Download AzCopy. Run one of the following AzCopy commands.

    To copy whole disks in the storage account:

    AzCopy /Source:https://sourceaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer1
    
    /Dest:https://destaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer2
    
    /SourceKey:key1 /DestKey:key2 /S 
    

    To copy only one disk, provide the name of the disk in Pattern:

    AzCopy /Source:https://sourceaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer1
    
    /Dest:https://destaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer2
    
    /SourceKey:key1 /DestKey:key2 /Pattern:abc.vhd
    

    The operation might take several hours to finish.

    To make sure that the transfer finished successfully, examine the destination storage account container in the Azure portal. After the disks are copied to the standard storage account, you can attach them to the virtual machine as an existing disk. For more information, see How to attach a managed data disk to a Windows virtual machine in the Azure portal.

    How do I upgrade from a standard storage account to a premium storage account? How do I downgrade from a premium storage account to a standard storage account?

    You must create the destination storage account, copy data from the source account to the destination account, and then delete the source account. You can use a tool such as AzCopy to copy the data.

    If you have virtual machines, you must take additional steps before you migrate the storage account data. For more information, see Migrating to Azure Premium Storage (unmanaged disks).
