share drive across resource groups

We have a standard data drive that is shared with a VM in this resource group. We also have a Classic VM in a different resource group. Can we attach that drive to the classic VM? Or is there another way we can copy data from the shared drive to the Classic vm?

Hello @RichardPowers-4098

Unfortunately you cannot colocate unmanaged and managed disks on the same VM
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/faq-for-disks

You can create Azure Files share and mount it on both VMs

my question was not about colocating managed and unmanaged disks
however i think the response about mounting a share on both vm's may be the answer i was looking for and i am following up.
thanks
