Volume Storage

Unmount and Detach

You can use the umount command (note the spelling of the umount command) to unmount your device from its mount point (here /pvol). E.g.

$ sudo umount /pvol
You can use the Nectar dashboard to detach a volume from an instance. Navigate to the Volumes Volumes page, and use the ActionMenu for your volume to show the Manage Volume Attachments dialog. (Alternatively you can use the ActionMenu of the instance on the Compute Instances page)

Manage Volume Attachements

Notes: Volumes must be detached before deletion.
