Amazon S3 now provides the Last-Modified time of delete markers in the response headers of S3 Head and Get APIs. For buckets that use S3 Versioning, when a customer issues a delete request without a versionId specified, S3 adds a delete marker on the latest version of the object to protect data from accidental deletions. With Last-Modified information added to S3 Head and Get API response headers for delete markers, customers can more easily track changes in their buckets.
You can use the Amazon SDK and API to get the Last-Modified time of delete markers with S3 Head and Get APIs in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about working with delete markers, visit S3 User Guide.
