Hi Experts,

I want to delete an Amazon AWS EC2 instance - and the 2 volumes used by it.

I've stopped the instance, but I can't find the delete button?

Thanks,

Regards,
Leigh

It's the "terminate" option.  Right click the instance, "Instance State" -> "Terminate"

It'll still show up in the console for a little bit, but will eventually go away.  You might have to clean up the volumes manually - you can do this at the "Volumes" console (found under "Elastic Block Store").  Volumes that are marked "available" mean they are not attached to an instance.
