    @Domenico Rossi Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

    The error message indicates that the storage account has some active image(s) and/or disk(s), which prevents deletion.

    Resolution steps:

    #1To remove classic Disks, follow these steps on the Azure portal:

    -Navigate to the Azure portal.

    -Navigate to the Disks(classic).

    -Click the Disks tab.

    Screenshot shows the Azure portal with Disks (classic) selected. A classic disk name and storage account is shown.

    -Select your data disk, then click Delete Disk.

    Screenshot shows the Azure portal with Disks (classic) selected. A data disk is selected and the Delete option is highlighted.

    -Retry the Delete operation that previously failed.

    #2. The disk lease associated with the page blob (.vhd) also prevents deletion.

    Go to the Azure portal, navigate to OS images (classic), and delete the image associated with the storage account.

    This action will break the disk lease, allowing you to delete the page blob itself.

    A storage account or container can't be deleted if it has a single Disk.
