21.1. How to delete objects: delete and delete recursive

There are two ways in EVMS that you can destroy objects that you no longer want: Delete and Delete Recursive. The Delete option destroys only the specific object you specify. The Delete Recursive option destroys the object you specify and its underlying objects, down to the container, if one exists, or else down to the disk. In order for a volume to be deleted, it must not be mounted. EVMS verifies that the volume you are attempting to delete is not mounted and does not perform the deletion if the volume is mounted.
