Release a data disk

Last Updated: Sep 11, 2017

If you no longer need a data disk, you can release it. Otherwise, we continue charging you for it.

Warning: Releasing a data disk is a permanent action and cannot be reversed. Once deleted, the original data on the data disk cannot be restored. We recommend that you proceed with caution.



To release a data disk, perform the following:

  1. Log on to the ECS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Disks.

  3. Select a region.

  4. Find the disk that you want to release, and in the Action column, select More > Release.

  5. In the Release dialog box, read the note and click Confirm Release.

Now you have successfully released the data disk.
