Hello All,

I want to move a storage account from:

  1. Resource group in a region to resource group in another region
  2. Resource group in a region to resource group in the same region

I do not want to copy the data, i want to move the entire storage account.

How can i calculate the cost of this move?

My understanding is that for option 1, there should be per GB cost based on the size of storage account and for option 2 there should be no cost.

    Option 1. This is not a supported operation of Resource Mover. You can see one method of transferring the data here https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-account-move?tabs=azure-portal#move-data-to-the-new-storage-account. The cost would depend primarily on the amount of data. Option 2 would not incur any cost.
