Alibaba Cloud OSS does not has the term folder. All elements are stored as objects. To use a folder in the OSS console, you actually create an object with a size of 0 ending with a slash (/) used to sort the same type of files and process them in batches. By default, the OSS console displays objects ending with a slash as folders. These objects can be uploaded and downloaded normally. In the OSS console, you can use OSS folders like using folders in the Windows operating system.
|The OSS console displays any object ending with a slash as a folder, whether or not it contains data. The object can be downloaded only using an application programming interface (API) or software development kit (SDK).|
