Last updated: 2020-11-30 10:32:53


    You can modify the storage class of your object uploaded to COS through the console at any time to meet your business needs in different scenarios. The storage classes COS provides include INTELLIGENT TIERING, STANDARD, STANDARD_IA, ARCHIVE, and DEEP ARCHIVE. For more information, please see Storage Class. The following section will guide you through how to modify the storage class of an object.


    • To modify the storage class of an object stored in ARCHIVE or DEEP ARCHIVE, you need to restore it first into STANDARD. For more information, see Restoring an Archived Object.
    • COS does not allow modifying the storage class of an object larger than 5 GB.


    1. Log in to the COS Console.
    2. On the left sidebar, click Bucket List.
    3. Click the bucket name to enter the bucket where the object is stored.
    4. Locate the single object you want to modify in the object list, and click More Actions > Modify Storage Class under the Operation column. To modify multiple objects at a time, you can select them all in the object list, and click Modify Storage Class from the More Actions drop-down list at the top.
    5. Choose the storage class in the pop-up window.
    6. Click OK.
