    @Hayamato Welcome to Microsoft Q&A, Thank you for posting your here!

    If you are trying to delete the managed disk Please execute the below command in PowerShell from Cloud shell and if you are receiving any error please share the debug logs to and mention my alias(RamyaHarinarthini-MST) in the subject line.

    Remove-AzDisk -ResourceGroupName 'ResourceGroup01' -DiskName 'Disk01' -Force -debug -verbose

    If the subscription state is in disabled state please reactivate it before deleting the disk

    Additional Information: If you are deleting a classic disk please follow the steps here and for ARM here
