Recover a disk on a disabled subscription

Hi, yesterday I forgot to deallocate a VM, and my students credit has expired. I would like to download the disk attached to that VM because i have some important data, but I can't create download link because subscription is read-only until I re-enable it. How can I recover that disk?
