Is there a way that I can copy or export a managed disk to a private storage account?

Can I create a copy of my managed disk?

    1. You can generate a read-only shared access signature (SAS) URI for the managed disk and use it to copy the contents to a private storage account or on-premises storage. You can use the SAS URI using the Azure portal, Azure PowerShell, the Azure CLI, or AzCopy
    2. You can take a snapshot of their managed disks and then use the snapshot to create another managed disk.
