Shrink Managed disk
I'd like the ability to shrink a managed disk.
I'm creating a managed image from a marketplace windows server base, installing a bunch of third party software and using DevTest labs and VSTS to automate the build of a base image that I use for a large number of VM deployments.
The managed disks created from my image are 128gb of which I use about 40gb. I'd like to shrink the managed disk used in the image to 64gb so the VMs I deploy from my image fit in the S6 managed disk pricing bracket.
This feature is under review for implementation.
+1! Allowing us to shrink or decrease the managed disk can save us some cost on unused storage.

Any news on the portal option yet? Thanks

This is very easily achievable with a PowerShell script, without having to export disks and modify them on-prem. This really should be an option through the Azure portal.
