Hello, I use the go AWS s3 sdk to manage the spaces.

When i try to use the WithContex… version of delete method, I’m getting the error “Not Implemented”:

	if _, err := c.s3.DeleteObjectsWithContext(ctx, &s3.DeleteObjectsInput{
		Bucket: aws.String(c.bucket),
		Delete: &s3.Delete{
			Objects: []*s3.ObjectIdentifier{{
				Key: aws.String(path),
	}); err != nil {
		return err // <-- not implemented here

But version without context does not return error and object got deleted (I can confirm it looking to the web interface if the Spaces). However the method does not return error even if I’m trying to delete not existing object:

	if _, err := c.s3.DeleteObject(&s3.DeleteObjectInput{
		Bucket: aws.String(c.bucket),
		Key:    aws.String(path),
	}); err != nil {
		return err //<-- always nil and object deleted

It sounds like you might have CDN enabled.

If this is the case, then you would need to purge your CDN cache if you want the deleted files to be purged from the CDN cache directly:

Let me know how it goes.
