docker volume [OPTIONS] COMMAND [--help]
docker volume has subcommands for managing data volumes.
docker volume command has subcommands for managing data volumes. A data volume is a specially-designated directory that by-passes storage driver management.
Data volumes persist data independent of a container's life cycle. When you delete a container, the Engine daemon does not delete any data volumes. You can share volumes across multiple containers. Moreover, you can share data volumes with other computing resources in your system.
To see help for a subcommand, use:
