Last updated on DECEMBER 01, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Storage Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While using Object storage cloud service, customer has uploaded a Windows image to a directory in the Cloud storage. By default, the segment files are created in the cloud storage with the naming convention of <DIRECTORY_NAME_SEGMENTS>.

When they delete the file uploaded inside the directory, the segments / part files under the segment directory are not getting removed automatically.

Customer is able to delete these segments only using the RestAPI or FTM CLI commands. But, this is a extra work. When the main file is deleted, the subsequent related files should also be deleted automatically which is not happening.
