Azure VM not deleted completely

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have seen multiple times.

    After deleting a VM, some supporting files left.

     

    To delete all supported files, I have to delete Resource Group.

    Regards

  • Thanks for posting; When deleting a VM it will not delete all the associated resources with it. this is by design, to allow customers to re-use these resources when they want to. If not, you can either delete Resourcegroups as you mentioned, or based on resource tagging. Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks,

  • Hello,

    Deleting just a VM will not delete all supporting files.

    You can create a new resource group for a new VM and deleting that resource group will delete all supporting files and VM automatically.

  • If I just delete the VM and create another VM, I believe because of associated files of previous VM, there may be some issue in new VM. If I am right, I must delete Resource Group.
