Azure SQL Free Database Offer Charging for Storage

Hi There

I have a quick question regarding the Azure SQL Free Database Offer.

It seems that I got charged for database storage despite not consuming the 32gb of free storage. Is there any reason why it's charging me for storage?

See image for reference.

    As far as I can tell, the maximum database size needs to be set to 32 GB. As per

    • Maximum of 4 vCores and the maximum database size of 32 GB.

    You might want to raise a billing ticket to clarify this
