Can't delete a classic storage account


  • When I go to delete a Storage Account (classic) in the portal I am greeted with the following error:

    Failed to delete storage account 'xxxxx'. Unable to delete storage account 'xxxxx': 'Storage account xxxxx has some active image(s) and/or disk(s), e.g. xxxx-5s586xxx-xxxxx-os-xx417365xxxxx. Ensure these image(s) and/or disk(s) are removed before deleting this storage account.'.

    Yet there is nothing else in my account using this storage account, any ideas on how I can remove this?
