Delete files on amazon s3 with asp net


Amazon S3 ( Storage Service) is a popular storage service provided by Amazon Web (AWS). It allows to store and retrieve large amounts of data in a highly scalable and reliable manner. In this article, we will explore how to delete files on Amazon S3 using the ASP.NET programming language.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  • An AWS account with access to Amazon S3
  • Studio or any other ASP.NET development environment
  • The AWS SDK for .NET installed in your project

Deleting Files on Amazon S3

To delete files on Amazon S3 using ASP.NET, we need to perform the following steps:

Step 1: Set Up AWS Credentials

First, we need to set up our AWS credentials to our requests. You can obtain your AWS access key ID and secret access key from the AWS Management Console. Once you have them, you can configure the AWS SDK for .NET to use these credentials.

using Amazon;
using Amazon.S3;

// Set up AWS credentials
var credentials = new Amazon..BasicAWSCredentials("YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_ID", "YOUR_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY");
var  = new AmazonS3Config
    RegionEndpoint = RegionEndpoint.USWest2 // Replace with your desired region

// Create an instance of the Amazon S3 client
var s3Client = new AmazonS3Client(credentials, config);

Step 2: Delete a File

Now that we have set up our AWS credentials, we can proceed to delete a file on Amazon S3. To delete a file, we need to the bucket name and the key (path) of the file we want to delete.

string bucketName = "your-bucket-name";
string key = "path/to/file.txt";

// Delete the file
s3Client.DeleteObject(bucketName, key);

Step 3: Delete Multiple Files

If you want to delete multiple files at once, you can use the DeleteObjects method provided by the Amazon S3 client. This method allows you to specify a list of keys to delete.

string bucketName = "your-bucket-name";
List keysToDelete = new List
    new KeyVersion { Key = "path/to/file1.txt" },
    new KeyVersion { Key = "path/to/file2.txt" },
    new KeyVersion { Key = "path/to/file3.txt" }

// Delete the files
s3Client.DeleteObjects(new DeleteObjectsRequest
    BucketName = bucketName,
    Objects = keysToDelete


In this article, we have learned how to delete files on Amazon S3 using the ASP.NET programming language. We covered the steps to set up AWS credentials and delete both single and multiple files. By following these steps, you can easily manage your files on Amazon S3 within your ASP.NET application.
