How to create an empty snapshot in Azure?

Microsoft Azure

Hi Guys,

I am new to Azure. I want to create an empty snapshot in Azure. How can I create that?



A snapshot in Azure is referred to as a full, read-only copy of the virtual hard drive. You are allowed to take the snapshot of the hard disk or the operating system. This is done to use as a backup or to resolve or troubleshoot the machine-related issues. The below command can be used to create an empty snapshot in Azure.

$ az snapshot create -g MyResourceGroup -n MySnapshot --size-gb 10
