Why Should I Use Versioning?

As per the FAQ,

Amazon S3 provides customers with a highly durable storage infrastructure. Versioning offers an additional level of protection by providing a means of recovery when customers accidentally overwrite or delete objects. This allows you to easily recover from unintended user actions and application failures. You can also use Versioning for data retention and archiving.

So we would highly recommend enabling versioning in production use.

Here are the simple steps for enable versioning:

  1. Sign in to the AWS Console and open the Amazon S3 console
  2. You can see a list of buckets that you have created.
  1. Click on the Bucket name, it will show the screen of that specific Bucket.

6. Clicking on Enable Versioning button, it will popup a confirmation window like below,

  1. After clicking on OK button, the versioning would be enabled for that specific Bucket. Notice, the button label would have changed. See below screenshot for reference.
