Backup from deleted DB

I recently copied a sql database and then deleted original broken database - replicating a broken database

It is an S1 package with 20 DTU's at around £28 p/m

I have gone into my deleted original database and attempted to restore the deleted database to a date and time available before when it was broken and working.

However, when going to create the deleted DB at the chosen restore point i get this:

SQL database by Microsoft

Estimated cost per month
325.98 GBP

It is giving me the only option of Gen 5 with 2 vcores??

Many thanks in advance to anyone able to help out.

    Allow the GUI to use that service tier. After the database is restored you can change the service tier of the database to the type you want (DTU-mode, v-corde) and to the service tier you want.
