Will the ingress/egress costs of a Azure Storage Account be impacted by the size of the storage account?

I am using an Azure Storage Account, Data Lake Storage Gen V2. I was wondering if the used capacity in the storage account, and dramatically reducing the used capacity in the storage account, would lead to decreases in the ingress/egress costs. Thank you!

    Hello @Stephanie Eristoff ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    No, the ingress/egress costs of a Azure Storage Account be impacted by the size of the storage account.

    Note: Data Storage and transactions (Ingress/egress) is unrelated to used capacity.

    For more details, refer to Azure Data Lake Gen2 pricing.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
