Storing Objects in a Bucket

You can store objects in a bucket in Wasabi. An object can be any type of filetext, photo, video, etc.

  1. In the Bucket list, click the bucket name (as circled below) into which you want to upload an object.

  2. bucket_list.png 

    The bucket content panel is displayed. If your bucket already holds objects, the panel will list the object names and associated information (as you will see later in this procedure). If your bucket is empty, you will see a panel such as:

    empty_bucket.png 

  3. Click UPLOAD FILES.

  4.  

  5. The Upload Files window is displayed.

    You can upload files and folders in two different ways:

    Drag and drop files and folders onto the Drag & Drop Files and Folders area of the panel. (Continue with Step 4.)

    Upload a file(s) by clicking the BROWSE FILES button. Then, navigate to find the file(s) you want to upload. You can use the Shift or Ctrl keys to select multiple files. (Continue with Step 4.)

    If you choose the same file name from different folders, Wasabi will store the file chosen last before the upload starts.

       Note:   Avoid the use of the following special characters in a file name:
    % (percent)
    < (less than symbol)
    > (greater than symbol)
    \ (backslash)
    # (pound sign)
    ? (question mark)

       Note:   After you initiate the upload, you will see an alert that indicates the objects are attaching and you should wait until this is done.

    When you upload a file, it is listed on the Upload Files panel. For example:

    upload_files.png 

    When you upload multiple files, all files are listed and a scroll bar appears to the right of the files, enabling you to scroll through the file names. For example:

    file_uploader2.png 

       Note:   To remove a file from the list before uploading, click X to the right of the file name.
    To remove all selected files before uploading, click CLEAR FILES.

  7. Click START UPLOAD to upload the objects. A check appears to the right of each file name when it is suc­cessfully uploaded.

   Note:   To remove a file from the list after you start uploading, click abort_file_upload.png to the right of the file name.

When the upload is complete, you are returned to the Upload Files panel where you can repeat these steps to upload additional folders or files. For now, close the Upload Files window by clicking 46-closebutton.png 

A message at the bottom of the Object Storage panel indicates the upload status. For example:
success.png

   Note:   When the file upload is in progress, you can minimize the Upload Files window by clicking the X in the upper right corner. When the Upload Files window is minimized and an upload is in progress, you can navigate to all pages, except Billing.

   Note:   The message, Network Failure, is displayed if the network is interrupted during an upload.

Uploaded files are listed on the Object Storage panel. The following example shows multiple files stored in the widget-project bucket.

Folders and files are displayed with a Name, Type, Last Modified (date), and Size. You can click the column heading to sort the listing by:

Size—smallest size to largest, or largest to smallest.
