I am being charged for using Block Storage within the free tier.

Free tier usage of block storage is being charged.


Hello everyone.

I have recently created an OCI account and I am still in the free tier usage.

I have 2 running compute instances with 2 block volumes attached as boot volumes. I know that the free tier include 2 block volumes totaling 200GB. 

I have 2 boot volumes as I mentioned with sizes of 85GB and 50GB which is well with in the free tier limit of 200GB. But the cost analysis shows that I am using the paid block volume instead of the free one. 

Is this a glitch or is it me doing something wrong that's counting as non free usage? Thanks in advance.


Howdy, Stranger!
