Amazon S3 has added a nice new feature that eliminates one reason that has really kept me away from using it more.
Up to now, I had only used my Amazon S3 account for large, manual server backups, however, with this latest feature, I can use my Amazon S3 space much like a DropBox — in my browser!
Amazon S3 now has Multi-Object Delete.
Before, if you wanted to delete multiple folders or multiple files in one folder, you could not delete multiple files at once.
Well, now you can!
You can use Multi-Object Delete to specify up to 1,000 objects for deletion in one request. This speeds up your deletes by reducing the number of request roundtrips between your application and Amazon S3. Multi-Object Delete is immediately available in all Amazon S3 Regions free of charge.
If you don’t want to mess with the Amazon S3 via your browser, here are a few FTP apps you can use:
If you use a desktop app to access Amazon S3, tell me what you use and I’ll add it to the list!
