Changes in Bucket Explorer Amazon S3 - 2010.04

Bucket Explorer Version 2010.04 comes with some more enhancements. Here are some of the new features and improvements which will make the Amazon S3 experience much better for all its users. Click  here to download this new version of Bucket Explorer.

List S3 version objects Amazon S3 Versioning option:

Bucket explorer allows its users to use Amazon S3 versioning feature. When we upload or delete existing objects in S3 Bucket, the object will be overwritten or deleted. When objects are overwritten or deleted, their older versions are stored in S3 if the versioning is enabled on that Bucket. You can list all the overwritten and deleted versions in that bucket.
You can enable versioning on a bucket by using Advance → Versioning → Set option in bucket toolbar of Bucket Explorer. It will show two options (1. Versioning, 2. MFA Delete).  You can choose which option what you want to set on your bucket.
You can use Versioning for retention and archiving of data. Amazon S3 stores every version of your archived data with Versioning. There is no limit to the number of versions you can store in Amazon S3. There is no limit for how long you can store these versions.

update acl on version objects By enabling Versioning on Amazon S3 Bucket using Bucket Explorer, you can:

  1. You can list all versions of objects in a bucket.
  2. You can see all versions of a particular object (file and folder object).
  3. You can set ACL on all version objects.
  4. You can remove versioning to stop archiving versions of your data.
  5. You can see all deleted data objects of your bucket.
  6. You can copy and restore version object.
  7. You can generate public URL as well as signed URL for version objects.
  8. You can perform delete/update ACL/download for multiple version objects.

enable mfa delete MFA Delete :

Bucket Explorer has MFA Delete feature that provides additional security from preventing malicious access (unauthorized deletion of an S3 object) on objects. You have options to set/remove MFA Delete option with versioning.


create private streaming distribution



Private Streaming Distribution:

Bucket Explorer also has a new type of distribution and that is “Private Streaming Distribution”. You can create Private Streaming Distribution same with other distribution type.



drag and drop for upload,download and copy Drag and Drop :

Bucket Explorer allows you to use Drag and Drop to upload, download and copy S3 objects that makes your work fast and easy. You can pick your native file(s) then start dragging those file(s) and drop onto the object table of Bucket Explorer. The dropped file will be uploaded to Amazon S3 in your selected bucket. You can also upload file(s) from local file explorer situated on the left side of Bucket Explorer main window, by simply start dragging the selected file(s) and dropping into the object table. You can download in similar way. If you have two instances of Bucket Explorer opened, then you can copy your S3 objects by dragging the selected S3 objects from the source (object table of one instance) and dropping into the destination (object table of another instance).

AWS Export Service

Amazon AWS Export:

Bucket Explorer now supports AWS Export. AWS Export transfers data directly into your storage devices using Amazon’s high-speed internal network. For large data sets, AWS Export is significantly faster than Internet transfer and more cost efficient than upgrading your connectivity.
To use AWS Import/Export, you must have an AWS account and signed up to use both AWS Import/Export and Amazon S3.
