  • ONTAP 9

Description

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
