Automatic BIG option

Mar 9, 2011 at 5:48 PM

When PUTting large files over 5GB, S3 returns an error stating that the /big option must be supplied.  This would be fine to provide, however /big is apparently incompatible when also using /sub.  This error is especially troublesome since it causes the entire operation to crash.  I don't know what the complications or the basis of the /big + /sub conflict are, but perhaps this might mitigate the issue...

Recommendation for option:

  • /autobig - for files over 5GB, this will automatically split the file into chuncks.
