- ONTAP 9
A volume delete request against a volume that has type RW or DP (as seen in volume show command output) causes that volume to be moved to a partially deleted state. By default, it is retained in a recovery queue for at least 12 hours before being fully deleted.
- Deleting a FlexGroup volume in ONTAP 9.1 and above will move the member or constituent volumes to the volume recovery queue until the retention period expires.
- As of 9.7 you can recover deleted volumes using System Manager : ONTAP System Manager > Recover deleted volumes
