Cyberduck Reviews

Lousy performance with Amazon S3

about Cyberduck and S3Fox Organizer · ·

I'm using Cyberduck solely for uploading to Amazon S3. It's been a huge headache. Cyberduck frequently fails to even start when the set of files is large. When it does start, it often crashes after around 100MB. Sometimes it fails to detect the file on each side of the transfer is the same file. And it doesn't have a mode that will properly mirror in one direction (delete files from the destination as necessary).

Cyberduck is a lousy tool for Amazon S3. It's marginally worse than Amazon S3 Firefox Organizer, which is as bad or worse. It feels like Amazon S3 support was an afterthought tacked on to an already bloated piece of software, and it was done poorly.
