I deleted all the files from my Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets, but I still have charges for S3 on my bill. Why?
Here are some things you can check to minimize your S3 charges:
- Disable logging for any S3 buckets before deleting them.
- Delete any file versions (backups of S3 objects) in versioning-enabled buckets.
- Delete empty S3 buckets that you don't need. Some programs (including the AWS Management Console) initiate LIST requests to pull the names of your buckets.
- Cancel any incomplete multipart upload requests.
