How to Find a Docker Volume Location

In this blog post, I will show you how to find the default location of a Docker volume.

My Docker environment is running on Linux CentOS 7.7, and I will start with creating a volume.

Get Started

To create a volume on my Docker host, I will run the following command.

docker volume create vol001

The volume name is called vol001.

To check the location, I will run the following command with the name of the volume.

docker inspect vol001

Below, you can see the location which is

/var/lib/docker/volumes/vol0001/_data

To get a list of all the Docker volumes on my host I will type.

docker volume list
