Removing a volume from the domain only prevents the volume from being
subject to normal INCREMENTAL backup processing. Thus any active versions
on that volume will remain indefinitely, and any inactive versions will
expire per management class criteria.

If you want to get rid of the file space data altogether, use the DELETE
FILESPACE administrative command.
