How to differentiate the Classic and ARM storage accounts?

We received an email "Subject: Action required: Migrate your classic storage accounts to Azure Resource Manager"

We are having four storage accounts in our Azure subscription, please find below details about storage accounts 'Kind' and 'ResourceType'

Storage account1 : Kind-Storage (general purpose v1) and ResourceType : Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts
Storage account2 : Kind-Storage (general purpose v1) and ResourceType : Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts
Storage account3 : Kind-Storage (general purpose v1) and ResourceType : Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts
Storage account4 : Kind -StorageV2 (general purpose v2) and ResourceType : Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts

We want to know are these storage accounts are still Classic or ARM storage accounts. can anyone please let me know how to differentiate the Classic and ARM storage accounts?

Thanks in advance.

These don't appear to be classic resources. In the Azure portal your storage accounts would have (classic) after the resource name to indicate classic resources.

You could also run the below PowerShell command in the Cloud Shell.

 Get-AzResource -ResourceType Microsoft.ClassicStorage/storageAccount

Hi Alan,

Good Morning.

Thanks for the response.

I still see the storage accounts in the subscription as a classic when I search for the storage accounts from "Azure>all services> storage account". please find the picture attached.

I ran the command and it is not returning the list of SAccounts.

Please let me if there is any other way to confirm that these storage accounts are not classic.

If you click into these storage accounts there will be a migrate to ARM option if they are classic. See image below.

Hi @AlanKinane @B-M-35

If i check my own Storage Accounts under "Storage accounts (classic)" i can see all of them, Classic (1) and ARM (4), the icon is slightly different:

Using Storage Explorer i can confirm the same:

Yes, that's it. The last one is the classic storage account. If you need this account then you should migrate this to ARM.
