Deleting a File or Folder

This section describes how to delete a file or folder.

Context

Deleting a folder will delete all files in the folder. Ensure that all files in a folder are not needed before deleting the folder.

Deleting unnecessary or unwanted files or folders saves storage space and costs.

You can use the lifecycle management function to delete unneeded files automatically and regularly or batch delete all files or folders. For details, see section Configuring a Lifecycle Rule.

Procedure

  1. Log in to OBS Browser.
  2. Select the target object and choose More > Delete on the right.

    You can hold down Ctrl or Shift to select multiple files or folders. Then right click and select Delete to batch delete them. You can also select all the files or folders on the current page by pressing Ctrl+A. The operations are consistent with those on the Windows operating system.

  3. Click OK.

    The file or folder deletion progress is displayed on the task management page.

    You can suspend or cancel a deletion task based on site requirements. For details, see section Managing Deletion Tasks.
