Is it possible 4TB(+\-) equals 2.3MB in the Blob world? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I performed a VEEAM backup, to Azure last night.

    The size of the backup (before VEEAM compression), is 5.7 TB

    It ends up being about 4TB

    When I look at Azure Metrics, it's showing Avg Used Capacity for my Resource Group, to be: 2.3MiB

    Which I understand to be: approx 2.3MB

    Or, am I way off/ misunderstanding..?

    I'm very new to Blob storage, so....

  • Hi Rich, 

    The Azure Metrics probably did not update/refresh its content to reflect the current size of your backup, (4TB that you mentioned), a quick way to see what's using what specific space in Azure storage, is to use Azure storage Explorer: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/features/storage-explorer/
    This allows you to browse to the specific blob, then will show you the size of your data. 

    Let me know if this helps.

  • Thanks Adam, but:

    1) My size is reading in "B"


    2) I uploaded my 1st 4TB job last Friday...surely it doesn't take a week for that to catch up..?

    Other thoughts?
