I have been using Cloudflare R2 for Mastodon media storage for almost a week. Let me see what the status of this bucket is and how much storage it takes.

The Cloudflare R2 Bucket information

See, the Bucket size is 1.91 GB.

AWS tools

I run the command to configure the account first.

The command to check each file is ./aws s3 ls s3://mtd-files --recursive --human-readable --summarize --endpoint-url=https://00e73fde5xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx65f0.r2.cloudflarestorage.com/

./aws s3 ls s3://mtd-files --recursive --human-readable --summarize --endpoint-url=https://00e73fde5xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx65f0.r2.cloudflarestorage.com/

Total Objects: 15672
   Total Size: 1.8 GiB


The total size is 1.8GiB.

1.8Gib = 1.93274GB.

The Price: Free Quota.

Free Paid – Rates
Storage 10 GB / month $0.015 / GB-month
Class A Operations 1 million requests / month $4.50 / million requests
Class B Operations 10 million requests / month $0.36 / million requests

I can sit and relax for years. I think it takes a lot of time to over the Free Quota limit.
