I have gone through few docs, till now i'm using transation optimised access tier for 35GB data, and it is costing $30-35/day.

But when i come across docs, the premium access tier costing low, it is only costing for the data that is stored, no cost on transactions .

So the billing for 50GB data at rest will be $8 for premium access tier.

If you look at Cost Analysis in Cost Management you should be able to see the number of transaction being performed. With the costs you are seeing I am guessing you have a very transaction intensive workload. Your analysis is correct in that premium shares would be cheaper on the surface. However premium shares performance scales based on provisioned size and the minimum size to provision is 100GiB. It still would likely come out cheaper even if you had to overprovision the premium file share. All costs should be displayed on the Azure Files pricing page.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have further questions or concerns and we will be happy to assist.
