Hi,

I have about 16mil files (1 TB total) in DO space and I wanted to set expiration policy to delete all files older than 40 days. According to docs, DO Spaces should support LifecycleConfiguration, so that I set it for bucket using s3cmd:

s3cmd expire  s3://mybucket --expiry-days 40

The command was accepted and the rule was set:

s3cmd getlifecycle  s3://mybucket

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<LifecycleConfiguration xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/">
    <Rule>
        <ID>bqwrg54gdyz5sn8gwkq9c6yqlcdvmalfkelpg82u6vl1nhrs</ID>
        <Prefix/>
        <Status>Enabled</Status>
        <Expiration>
            <Days>40</Days>
        </Expiration>
    </Rule>
</LifecycleConfiguration>

However, 2 months passed and I checked the bucket again and I still can see files older than half year. So is this feature working? Is it limited to some specific datacenter or so?

Thanks,

Jindrich
