S3 Useage and Billing - I can't find the data I am being billed for

0

I am being billed for S3 usage but all my buckets are now empty and I have removed all vaults from Glacier. I have been clearing down space for months but my S3 monthly bill has not reduced. According to my bill, I am being charged for "Amazon Simple Storage Service EU-TimedStorage-RRS-ByteHrs"

Any pointers?

Thank you.

If you have versioning enabled on your buckets and you deleted the file, the underlying versions will still remain. They would have to be cleared out also either manually or with a lifecycle rule

  • Would you be able to direct me to the instructions on how to do that? I can't find where to clear out the underlying versions for the deleted folders in my bucket.

Hello.

As you can see from the documentation below, this is a charge for the time the data is stored in S3.
Is there any data that has versioning enabled in S3 and has not been completely deleted?
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/userguide/aws-usage-report-understand.html

Usage TypeDescription
region-TimedStorage-ByteHrsThe number of GB-hours that data was stored in S3 Standard storage

You can use S3 Storage Lens to check if there are any objects left in your S3 bucket.

Looking at Storage Lens, it shows usage in a bucket that I had recently emptied. I have added some lifecycle management so will see how that goes and what my next bill looks like. Thank you.

The usage type points to S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage cost, please see below link to understand the cost:
