    Can you check the command for deletion - Remove-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName "RG01" -Name "mystorageaccount"

    Try list command to get the directories and Blob info -

    az storage blob list \
        --account-name <storage-account> \
        --container-name <container> \
        --output table \
        --auth-mode login

    Check this page -

    Hope this helps.
