Docker mount dangling volume

docker

(Dylanjtempleton) #1

Hi Guys,

I recently created a mongodb docker instance running on boot2docker on windows.

Unfortunately during my experimenting with kitematic I managed to accidentally remove the volume from the mongo container and can no longer access my data.

The mongo instance seems to have created a new volume with the old volume now remaining dangling (orphaned) and not mounted in any containers.

Is there any way to recover this?

Thanks in advance!
