Update only parts of a chunk?


#1

Hello all,

I am working with the C SDK. When writing to an object, I know it is possible to append a new chunk or to overwrite all data of an existing chunk. I would like to know if I can also overwrite only part of a chunk, while keeping the rest of the chunk’s data intact?

Thanks in advance

Hello @z0mbi,

Chunks are immutable by nature. You can however reduce the chunk size of your objects, thus reducing the impact of the changes made to the object by splitting it into more chunks.
