Deactivate a volume

This call deactivates a volume. Note that this request is based off of the PATCH request to update a volume.

Once deactivated, you cannot import from, export to, or browse within a volume. As such, the content of the files imported from this volume will no longer be accessible on CAVATICA. However, you can update the volume and manage members. Note that you cannot deactivate the volume if you have running imports or exports unless you force the operation using the query parameter force=true, as described below.

Note that to delete a volume, first you must deactivate it and delete all files which have been imported from the volume to CAVATICA.
