Remove an Active Lease on a Blob in Azure

I was creating and dropping VMs in Azure, and found myself charged money for disks that I thought I’d deleted. I found later that deleting a VM doesn’t necessarily remove the disk blob. Here was one way that I removed some of those blobs.

First, go to the classic portal. For some reason, the new Portal doesn’t have the capability.

Click Disks

At the bottom, click Delete

That removed one lease, but not others. To get rid of those, I had to do more research and searching. That process is for another post.
