    Hello @Venkata satyanarayana Machari veera (CIS)

    If your Disk is managed, you can take following steps.

    • Select the VM from the list of Virtual machines.
    • In the pane for the VM, select Disks from the menu.
    • Select the disk that you want to convert.
    • Select Size + performance from the menu.
    • Change the Account type to HDD from the original disk type to the desired disk type.
    • Select Save, and close the disk pane.

    The disk type conversion is instantaneous. You can start your VM after the conversion.
