  • Hi,

    you'll be charged for the storage used in your storage account even if the VMs are shutdown / deallocated. The only way to prevent this is by removing the data from your storage account. (you're using the disk space even if you're not using the data, that's why you get charged for it)

  • Hi,

    Premium storage cost are calculated based on the Disk. even if we didn't use the disk it charges for the whole capacity of the disk. Lets assume you provisioned a 1TB premium disk you will charge for 1TB.  In General purpose storage it cost for the storage used. So if we delete the VM attached to the premium storage the disk is still in storage so you have to delete it manually.
