Azure Storage browser shows incorrect container count and size.

In Azure storage account, we have a new option Storage browser(Preview) , which shows total count of containers and overall size . It shows number of containers as 5 , but when i see , i can only see 4 containers. i dont know where is the 5th container, which is expected to be very heavy ?

Also i calculated size of each container and found that overall total added size of all containers does not exceed around 300 GB, but storage browser shows 1.2TiB ( which i think is 1.2 TeraBytes)

    As the feature is in preview, there can be certain issues involved till the feature comes out. I suggest you to verify this using Azure Storage explorer desktop application:
    Connect your subscription and check how you see the Blob Containers within Storage Explorer
