Deleting qtrees

You can delete a qtree and reclaim the disk space it uses within a volume by using System Manager. When you delete a qtree, all quotas applicable to that qtree are no longer applied by Data ONTAP.

Before you begin


  1. Click the SVMs tab.
  2. Select the SVM, and then click Manage.
  3. Click the Qtrees tab.
  4. In the Qtrees window, select one or more qtrees that you want to delete, and then click Delete.
  5. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Delete.
  6. Verify that the qtree you deleted is no longer included in the list of qtrees in the Qtrees window.
