S3 object versioning is a feature that allows users to preserve, retrieve, and restore every version of an object in an S3 bucket. When S3 versioning is enabled, S3 automatically creates a unique version ID for each version of the object, making it easy to manage, recover, and restore previous versions of an object if needed. Ensuring S3 object versioning is enabled can help protect against data loss or accidental deletion of objects. However, it's important to note that enabling S3 object versioning can also increase storage costs, as multiple versions of the same object will be stored in the bucket.
To ensure S3 object versioning is enabled, follow the below steps:
Once you enable versioning, S3 will automatically version all the objects in the bucket, including any existing objects, and the older versions of the object will be stored. This ensures that if there is any data loss or deletion, the older versions can be restored.
