I've been trying to see if the formats that S3 console and s3sync use are the same--or highly compatible. I created a "prefix" and a "directory" under that prefix in S3 by means of S3 console, and I populated them with a few files. Now I am trying to download the contents under this prefix with the command
> ruby s3sync.rb -r lejar-test:pre/ /temp
where "lejar-test" is the name of my bucket, "pre" the prefix, and /temp a directory in my hard disk, and I get the error message:
S3 command failed.
get_stream pre #<File:0x2de1888>
With result 404 Not Found
s3sync.rb:645:in `unlink': Permission denied - C:/temp/ (Errrno::EACCES)
from s3sync.rb:645:in `updateFrom'
from s3sync.rb:393:in `main'
Of course, I have no problem downloading stuff that I uploaded with s3sync itself in this way.
I am sorry to hear that s3sync is not under development anymore. I'll check tarsnap.
