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. COS offers a range of storage classes, including INTELLIGENT TIERING, STANDARD, STANDARD_IA, ARCHIVE, and DEEP ARCHIVE. For more information, see Storage Class Overview. 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 Archived Objects.
- COS does not allow modifying the storage class of an object larger than 5 GB.
