Deletes a file system, permanently severing access to its contents. Upon return, the file system no longer exists and you will not be able to access any contents of the deleted file system.

You cannot delete a file system that is in use. That is, if the file system has any mount targets, you must first delete them. For more information, see DescribeMountTargets and DeleteMountTarget.

The DeleteFileSystem call returns while the file system state is still "deleting". You can check the file system deletion status by calling the DescribeFileSystems API, which returns a list of file systems in your account. If you pass file system ID or creation token for the deleted file system, the DescribeFileSystems will return a 404 "FileSystemNotFound" error.

This operation requires permission for the elasticfilesystem:DeleteFileSystem action.
