Disk location is not showing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    there are disks on our production servers that doesn't show SOURCE BLOB. The only thing i can see is the name and the RESOURCE ID. The image below is from one of them.


    The servers were created from the resource manager wizard.

  • Are you looking for the path to the .vhd file within a storage account?

    Since you are using a managed disk, the storage account is abstracted away so you won't have access to the underlying vhd file.

  • Hey Andres,

    Thank you for your answer. Would that mean i will be unable to find these disks in the storage accounts? I am looking at some increased costs about storage and i can see some disks (like the on above) are not related to vhd's in the storage accounts. I wouldn't want to delete any disks that are currently in use.

  • Correct, they are not visible in a storage account.
