Deleting a Bucket

You can delete a specific empty bucket and a bucket created by yourself.

Before deleting a bucket, ensure that all objects in this bucket have been deleted and all multipart upload tasks are completed.

Procedure

  1. Open the command line tool.
  2. Run the following command to delete a specific bucket:

    s3cmd rb s3://my-bucket

    NOTE:

    my-bucket is the name of the bucket that you want to delete. For example, s3cmd rb s3://examplebucket indicates that the bucket to be deleted is examplebucket.

    If the following information is displayed in the command output, it indicates that this bucket is successfully deleted:
    Bucket 's3://my-bucket/' removed

  3. (Optional) Run the following command to check that the deleted bucket does not exist in the bucket list:

    s3cmd ls
