If you no longer use a bucket, delete it to avoid incurring further fees.


To delete a bucket, ensure that all objects in the bucket are deleted, including parts generated from incomplete multipart upload tasks. Otherwise, the bucket cannot be deleted.
  • To delete all objects in a bucket, we recommend that you configure lifecycle rules for the bucket. For more information, see Configure lifecycle rules.
  • For more information about how to delete parts in a bucket, see Manage parts.
Warning Deleted objects cannot be recovered. We recommended that you proceed with caution when you perform this operation.
