I have volume created. I am attaching a instance to that volume and pushing some files. After doing it I am deleting the instance. I am creating a new volume again with the same volume. I see old data is still there. I do not want to delete volume. Is there a way I can clean the volume ..something like formatting so that when I create a instance I will be starting everything new

The point of a volume is that it conserves the data on it. If you want to wipe it, you have to do that yourself, but again, that defeat’s the volume’s purpose.

Why don’t you want to delete the volume?
