Unable to delete VHDs


  • Hi All

    I am struggling to delete the VHD under the disks.

    I have deleted the VHDs using cloudxplorer , but not able to delete them from UI

    when I try to delete the storage container , it errors out

    Storage account cloudatlas has  container(s) which have an active image and/or disk artifacts. Ensure those artifacts are removed from the image repository before deleting this storage account

  • Hi,

    If you want to delete the storage account, you need to delete any images/disks you have remaining in that storage account.
    Go to Virtual Machines -> "Disks" or "Images" tab -> select the images/disks that you have located in the Storage Account you want to delete -> then hit the "Delete disk" or "delete image" command. Back these up if you need before hitting the delete.
    Once the images/disks in the storage account have been deleted, you should be able to delete the storage account.
