Azure Cost Learning from Experience after Free Trial Expires

Well, today I logged into my Bank account and I have I nice debit of "MSFT AZURE", although I thought I was very careful to turn off all the Apps/Slots I would not be charged.

Another lesson by experience, I was wrong if you have a Plan aka S1 you will be charged even if you do not have one service running.

Set-AzureRmAppServicePlan -ResourceGroupName $rg -Name $AppServicePlan -Tier Free


Robocopy command can be used to move data from one folder to another.
Go to cmd
Robocopy "C:\SourceDir" "C:\DestDir" /E

above command copies all folders, subfolders and files from source to destination folder.
Happy Learning!

/MIR option. It can intelligently mirror source and destination, copying ONLY changed files and deleting files on the destination that are no longer on the source. Very useful when you need to maintain a backup/standby system. rsync is the unix equivalent to this command. I used rsync at home just yesterday. Great stuff!
