S3 File Gateway tries to optimize the number of versions uploaded to the S3 bucket in order to reduce network bandwidth and storage costs. This will sometimes result in a fewer number of objects than the number of file updates (data or metadata) that occurred on the NFS/SMB file share.
If your goal is to preserve every version of a file uploaded to a file share in the S3 bucket, then we suggest using the file upload notification feature. Please refer to the “Getting file upload notification” section in our documentation [[. You can also find additional details about this feature in our blog on the same topic []. This feature will enable you or your processing to wait until you receive “Storage Gateway Object Upload Event” for a file version before uploading 2nd version of that file.
