Can't delete EBS volume, not even with the force option


Hi Amazon,

EBS volume vol-7bd8af0b appears as "in-use" in my account since 2013-03-10, and I cannot delete it, not even with the force option. Although it appears to be in use, I have no EC2 instances running right now.

Please help. Thanks.

Hello! Please take a look at this similar question, it might help you

Sometimes a volume shows being "in-use" even if you don't have any instances. If this your case (and you don't have a snapshot or AMI associated with that volume), I recommend creating a support case, and they should be able to modify the state to "available" so that you can delete it. If you are unable to create a support case, please mention which region this volume is on.
