Deleting File Fragments

Last updated: 2020-05-09 09:39:25

    Overview

    If you try to delete the specified bucket but the system prompts that "Deletion failed. Please delete the valid data in the bucket first", you can enter Incomplete Multipart Uploads to view the files that have not been completely uploaded and delete them. The bucket can be deleted only after you confirm that all completely and partially uploaded files have been deleted from the bucket.

    • During the object upload progress, the files that are paused or canceled will be displayed in Incomplete Multipart Uploads. Files can be viewed in File List only after they are completely uploaded.
    • Like objects, incomplete multipart uploads consume your storage capacity and incur storage capacity costs.

    4. You can click Delete to the right of an incomplete multipart upload to delete it or click Clear Incomplete Multipart Uploads at the top to delete all incomplete multipart uploads.
    5. After you perform the "Clear Incomplete Multipart Uploads" or "Delete" operation, the list will be displayed as empty.
