Unable to delete AWS EBS volume

0 votes

I created an EC2 instance with 2 EBS volumes. I deleted that instance and now when I'm trying to delete these two volumes but I'm not able to do that. Error saying 'The volume ---- doesn't exist' pops up. So what is the concept here? Is it not possible to delete the volumes?

EBS root volumes are deleted by default and non-root volumes are kept unless if you enable "delete on terminate". If "delete on terminate" were set to the volume you are trying to delete then you might be experiencing an error due to the UI not being updated reflecting the previous deletion of the volume.

Hope this cleared the concept.
