Resize Azure data disk error when not between 20 and 1023 GB

Resize Azure data disk error when not between 20 and 1023 GB

Q. I'm trying to resize an Azure disk but I get an error when I try and shrink a disk below 20 GB?

A. 20 GB is the smallest size for an Azure VHD while 1023 GB is the largest. Attempting to resize a disk outside of these limits will result in an error. Also remember that when shrinking a VHD there must be sufficient unpartitioned space inside the VHD to allow the disk to be shrunk to the requested size, i.e. you cannot shrink a disk to 50 GB if there is 60 GB of partitioned space inside the VHD.
