If you are looking to download large
Amazon S3 Objects
(Files), by splitting into multiple parts of smaller size, you can use
feature of Bucket Explorer. Multiplart Download works similar to
feature and is an Exclusive feature of Bucket Explorer. This allows you to download a single
Amazon S3 Object (File)
as a set of parts. In the download process, each part is a portion of the object's data, and each part can be downloaded independently and simultaneously. Multipart download provides you faster and concurrent download of S3 objects on your local system.
Amazon S3 supports a similar feature, using which, you can download specific chunks of S3 Objects, by specifying the Byte Range along with GET Object. If, however, you want to download large S3 Objects by splitting into multiple small size parts, Bucket Explorer's Multipart Download might be your best choice. In Bucket Explorer, you can specify the size of the parts, which could vary from 5 MB to 5 GB, and Bucket Explorer will split the Object into multiple parts of specified size. Default part size is 32 MB.
You can download Amazon S3 Objects in multiple parts by sending the GET Request with one of the following two options:
a) Download Amazon S3 Objects in Multiple Parts using Amazon S3 REST API-
If you are a programmer, you can write your own code to use S3 REST API GET Object to download specified range bytes of an S3 Object.
b) Download Amazon S3 Objects in Multiple Parts using Bucket Explorer UI-
If you are not a programmer and would like to use an interface to download Amazon S3 Objects in multiple parts, you can use Bucket Explorer.
Using REST S3 API
You can perform Multipart download operations by using Amazon S3 supported REST API in your application code.
For this you must send a GET request with the byte-Range to be downloaded.
Using Bucket Explorer
You can perform the same Multipart Download operations using Bucket Explorer without writing a single line of code.
