  Whenever I start the Cloud Shell, I get the following error:

 

Warning: Failed to mount the Azure file share. Your cloud drive won't be available.                                                                                                  

Your Cloud Shell session will be ephemeral so no files or system changes will persist beyond your current session.

 

Can anyone help?

That means you have deleted the file share storage (storage account) that used by cloudshell 

@Kasun Rajapakse  Can we mount Storage account again ,I don't see any option to select the storage account.

I'm also getting the same error since last week ,please advise
