How to delete the files from AWS S3 except the recently 5 added updated files

0 votes

I could fetch the recent 5 files added or updated by:

aws s3 ls s3://somebucket/ --recursive | sort | tail -n 5 | awk '{print $4}'
Now how do I keep these files and delete all other?

Use AWS s3 rm command with multiple --exclude options as shown:
aws s3 rm s3://somebucket/ --recursive --exclude "somebucket/1.txt" --exclude "somebucket/2.txt" --exclude "somebucket/3.txt" --exclude "somebucket/4.txt" --exclude "somebucket/5.txt"
