Managing Volumes


Managing Volumes

Because Docker will not delete volumes automatically, you will have to delete them manually using the following command:

$ docker volume rm [volume name]

Note: the volume must not be in use in order to remove it!

To view volume details, run $ docker volume inspect [volume name]

If you inspect a container with $ docker container inspect [container name] you will find any mounted volumes under "Mounts"

To quickly remove all unused volumes, run $ docker volume prune and confirm.
