Why can I not make 2 Always free instances using VM.Standard.E2.1.Micro?

After getting problems keeping my ARM server going from Free to Always Free I started 1 (ONE) E2 micro server a few days ago. Today I wanted to start one more, so totally I would have 2.

Creating the second server fails with an error message

(400, LimitExceeded, false) You cannot create a volume because you have reached your limit. Upgrade to a paid account. (opc-request-id: C99FE6590B98F28146FDFB473C39E1AF/EE9303867ADF1BC80D78A8F2C4F108E0/FC6D0ADCA4C63F1CCA5BED37D8CCF688)

The picture is from when I try to create an instance and as I see it it should be possible to have two and from what I can read in the documentation 2 is also allowed. Unless UP TO TWO means I can have 1.99999 but not actually 2?

Howdy, Stranger!
