My boss has terminated some AWS EC2 instances and thinks he may have orphaned some volumes that were "D" drives as a result/he did not detach and delete the extra EBS volumes before terminating the EC2.

How can i see if there are orphaned volumes from his specific EC2 terminations now?  Is it possible? If so, how?
