How do I get sum of GBs used by Storage Accounts in Microsoft Azure?

In case you need to get sum of GBs used by all Storage Accounts created in Microsoft Azure, use below series of PowerShell commands.

  • $BlobVHDsSize=Get-AzureRmStorageAccount | Get-AzureStorageContainer | Get-AzureStorageBlob | Measure-Object Length -Sum | select-object sum
  • $TotalGBUsed = $BlobVHDsSize.Sum/1024/1024/1024
  • Write-Host $TotalGBUsed “GB”  

First command gets all blobs created in Microsoft Azure. Second command converts bytes to GB.

Note: You must install Azure PowerShell cmdlets Version 1.0 before you use above cmdlet.
