UPDATE - this is still a (preview) feature, the save worked the following day
I've updated the plan for Microsoft Defender for Storage ($10/Storage account/month On-upload malware scanning ($0.15/GB)) I've enabled this and says 'on' for storage but the monitoring coverage is Partial Malware scanning (preview) and Sensitive data discovery (preview) are both 'off' and I can turn them 'on' and press save, however, it reverts to 'off' and will not stay enabled. the save is successful, there are no other errors I am the Subscription owner
