Note: Deleting a Volume, Node and interfaces also deletes its data history. It's ideal to create a database back up before performing the steps below


  1. Find the volume you want to delete and open the page.
  2. Take note of the Volume ID number in the URL.

    3. Open the Database Manager and query to the Volumes Table. Notice that there's a Volume ID column, search for the Volume ID number there (you can also cross check if you have the right volume by looking at the Volume Description and Volume Caption).

   4. Highlight the correct Volume ID row, and then click enable table editing

   5. Right-click and delete the row.

   6. Click Enable table editing again.

   7. Verify if it is still present by querying to the Volumes table.


** This is also applicable in deleting Nodes and interfaces
