How do I check if an Azure Storage account is been used?

I want to delete some Storage accounts on my Azure tenant, is there a way to check if those storage accounts are been used by any other resources?
I just want to ensure that it is safe to delete the storage accounts

Hi @CarlMathapersad-3969 ,

one option could be to take a look on the metrics of the Storage Account if there is any egress or ingress activity during the last 30 days.

You can filter on Metric Namespace File, Blob, Table and Queues. And the metrics Ingress or Egress.

For example: In the screenshot you can see there is no activity since 29th of October.
