Failed to delete storage account


  • I am trying to delete a storage account but every time I try, I get the following error:

    Failed to delete storage account 'daniel4imcn561'. Unable to delete storage account 'daniel4imcn561': 'Storage account daniel4imcn561 has some active image(s) and/or disk(s), e.g. danielanthony-danielanthony-0-201512201645260619. Ensure these image(s) and/or disk(s) are removed before deleting this storage account.'.

    There are no other resources other than this storage account, this account is eating my MSDN allowance which is not acceptable.

  • Hi, download Azure Storage Explorer 6 and connect with storage, then browse its contents and delete all resources linked it.
