This section explains how to use the console to view the object overview panel.

The overview panel provides an overview of the essential information about an object in one place.

To see the overview panel for an object

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon S3 console at

  2. In the Bucket name list, choose the name of the bucket that contains the object.

  3. In the Name list, select the check box next to the name of the object for which you want an overview.

  4. If the bucket is versioning-enabled, you can choose Latest versions to see all of the versions of the object.

  5. You can then choose the download icon to download an object version, or choose the trash can icon to delete an object version.


    You can undelete only an object that was deleted as the latest (current) version. You can't undelete a previous version of an object that has been deleted. For more information, see Object Versioning and Using Versioning in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
