Cannot delete storage


  • Ok, so I am at a loss here.

    Through the portal I've tried to delete a storage account:

    Failed to delete storage account 'xxxpremium128'. Unable to delete storage account 'xxxpremium128': 'Storage account xxxpremium128 contains VM Images. Ensure these VM Images are removed before deleting this storage account.'.

    So I've gone through all the steps I could find:

    Through powershell - no effect

    Through the portal - no effect

    Through Azure Management Studio - no effect

    There is nothing inside it anymore, thorugh the AMS I successfully deleted a .vhd file lying there.

    Any more suggestions I can try out ?

    Kind regards,

  • Looks like it still thinks there's a VM image in the storage.

    Could you check there's nothing under Virtual Machines => Images?
