I appear to be running into the exact same phenomena referenced at R2 ghost file phenomenon and unable to delete r2 bucket or worker.
I have currently have two buckets, one of which functions correctly, the other of which has a a handful of completely invisible files. Uploading other files functions perfectly, and those files are listed correctly, and can be removed. This still leaves me with 4-8 files with unknown names that I have no way of deleting, and cannot delete the bucket since it isn’t empty.
I’ve used the web dashboard, Minio’s `mc’ utility, and the aws cli utility, none of which show any remaining files, except the dashboard still shows space is being used and refuses to delete the bucket.
I have no idea why object storage systems all seem to be set so a non-empty bucket cannot be deleted, but until this issue is fully worked out, I would suggest allowing it as a workaround, or preferably as a permanent option.
Any help would be appreciated.
@vlovich, from the posts I linked, it seems you’re involved in the work on this, so I’m tagging you here as an FYI. Apologies if that’s inappropriate in this context.
May I ask, how large were the objects by their size? Kb, Mb, or Gb?
Were they maybe ended up as being “splited” into two buckets from which one was for small size something and other for a larger one, as you’re saying you’ve had 2 buckets?
I might be asking unrelated or weird question, but there is some experience I’ve had with Infomaniak’s OpenStack object storage, also using
aws cli and some ghost files, which I couldn’t delete, neither the bucket itself
Maybe they changed something since then, haven’t used them after.
I wonder what happens at Cloudflare R2, if it’s some kind of a similar behaviour or what else.
Thanks for sharing experiences.
If your client doesn’t gracefully handle cancelled or failed multipart uploads, you can end up with in-progress uploads that take up storage space (in line with S3) until they are removed after 7 days (lifecycle rule) or you manually remove them (using
ListMultipartUploads and then

@KianNH, that was indeed the problem. Canceled those and the bucket showed no space used and deleted cleanly.
Thanks very much!
