Delete an object

Last Updated: Sep 28, 2017

If you do not need to store uploaded files any longer, delete them to avoid further fees. You can delete a single file or delete files in batches on the OSS console.

Note: The deleted file cannot be recovered. Perform this operation with caution.

You can delete up to 1,000 files at a time using the Batch Delete function of the OSS console. If you want to delete only the selected files or perform batch deletion in a larger volume, follow the procedures in API or SDK documents. For details, see the relevant sections of the Developer Guide.


  1. Log on to the OSS console.

  2. Select a bucket to open the Bucket Overview page.

  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Objects.

  4. Click the Delete link of the target file. The Delete Object dialog box is displayed.

  5. Click Confirm to delete the file.

    To delete files in batches, select the files to be deleted and click Batch Delete.
