See total size used by container/share and by storage account
We have multiple storage accounts each with blobs and other objects. The dashboards should show the total disk usage at every level: across all storage accounts, when clicking on a blob, the total for each folder, etc. Right now, one needs to get to the individual file level to see the size and manually sum it up.
Thank you for your feedback. Providing container capacity metrics is on our backlog but there is no ETA we can share at this time. We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at email@example.com.
We need this feature for Charge-Back since DataLake is a Shared Services across various Depts in the company

It is unbelievable that we cannot perform any PowerShell commands to get the user capacity of a file share. This is a must in capacity management.
The lack of this information makes storage account management unnecessarily difficult.
This is a must have, and not only total size, but metrics like object count are also a must at the container level.
After activating some services to use Azure Blob Storage, went to see how occupation (objects and used space) was growing on each service, just to find out that there is no way on getting that information, as we've decided, apparently wrongly to use multiple containers on the same storage account.

Have the same issue as everyone else, trying to find the size of each storage account and container is a pain. Quick google and I found Cloud Storage Manager which provides you with all the sizing information.

I am surprised this is not a more common request.
I would like to understand the size of all my data on my data lake by container, folder etc.
any update ?
Please provide this functionality via powershell

how can I get this information using PowerShell?
I have an automation account that get my reports about my usage and I would like to get a report of all my storage accounts and used capacity.
In one of the link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storagerp/operations/list#operation
It is mentioned that in jason response to following rest API call:
we can get used capacity of storage account:
"provider": "Microsoft Storage",
"resource": "Storage Accounts",
"operation": "Get list of Microsoft Storage Metrics definitions",
"description": "Get list of Microsoft Storage Metrics definitions."
"displayName": "Used capacity",
"displayDescription": "Account used capacity",
But REST API i not taking Storage Account name and access key. So how to construct GET REST API for my storage account: STGACT1 and access key: AKey1 to get the used capacity of my storage account?
"it should be at storage account level instead of container level." - Why, the need for a container size and other stats can be very helpful, especially in planning. What an obtuse statement.
it should be at storage account level instead of container level.
Rahul Naik commented
User should get stats about the storage account usage as their size limitation of 500TB on storage account.
Niteen Kulkarni commented
User should know when his storage is getting full.
Nuno Coimbra commented
I agree. It is often of uttermost importance having that ability in a simplified way. I urge you to consider this.

It would be very useful to have an api for container size retrieval. Fetching all blob metadata is not efficient.
it's very messy to check all your storage size for every storage name !
i'm using cerebreta "azure explorer" and always have to check the folders inside the containers and wait for the property of size.
can't wait for that :)
like we can do in the computer to see how much size for every drive...
Azure initially provided 100TB capacity per account. It has now increased it to 200TB.
We need maximum account capacity and capacity used to calculate the free space available in the account.
API exists to give capacity usage for an account. But there is no API to return maximum capacity for an account.
If Azure increases its capacity to 500 TB in its next release, there is no way to calculate the free space available.
Please provide an API that will return the maximum capacity of an Account.
