Is it possible to undo docker rm CONTAINER?

(He Zhang) #1


I accidentally removed my container with “docker rm [CONTAINER_ID]”.
Is there anyway that I can undo this, or restore the data in the container?
It was created from a CentOS 7 image.

no, docker rm is just like rm on the host, there is no going back
