Deleting an Object

You can delete unnecessary files one by one or in a batch on OBS Console to save space and money.


  1. In the bucket list, click the bucket you want to operate. The Overview page is displayed.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Objects.

  3. Select the file you want to delete, and choose More > Delete on the right.

    You can select multiple files and click Delete above the file list to batch delete the files.

  4. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.

    The object deletion task is displayed in the Task Management window.

Important Notes

In big data scenarios, parallel file systems usually have deep directory levels and each directory has a large number of files. In such case, deleting directories from parallel file systems may fail due to timeout. To address this problem, you are advised to configure a lifecycle rule for directories so that they can be deleted in background based on the preset lifecycle rule.
