Delete a bucket

You can delete an existing bucket from the filesystem only if the bucket is empty. If the bucket is not empty, you can detach the bucket from the S3 configuration and keep the data and metadata in place. Consequently, you can recreate the bucket while preserving the data and metadata (see Create a bucket using the Use Existing Directory switch.
If the intent is to keep the data files for use outside of the S3 configuration and delete only the S3 metadata, contact the Customer Success Team for assistance.
