Deleting an Export

Learn how to delete a File Storage export.


Deleting an export doesn't impact the data stored in the associated file system. Deleting an export disconnects any instance that mounts the file system with the deleted export path. Mount targets that have no exports still count toward your service limit.

When you delete an export, you can no longer mount the file system using the file path specified in the deleted export.
    1. Open the navigation menu and click Storage. Under File Storage, click Mount Targets.

    2. In the List scope section, under Compartment, select a compartment.
    3. Click the name of the mount target that you're interested in.
    4. On the mount target's details page, in Exports, find the export that you want to delete.
    5. Click the Actions menu (Actions Menu), and then click Delete.
    6. Confirm when prompted by clicking Delete.
  • Use the fs export delete command and required parameters to delete an export:
