I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

once your S3 storage (basket) is created, you may obtain its URL from its Proprrties. use the URL in your EC2 instance to access the data.

Laroy ShtotlandIT Security ConsultantCommented:
To do this you need to set up a WebDav server or software that mounts S3 as a drive.
Two I know of on Windows:
CloudBerry Drive http://www.cloudberrylab.com
WebDrive http://webdrive.com
For Linux you can try https://github.com/s3fs-fuse/s3fs-fuse

You don't need to, it's just easier than CLI, powershell, GET or wget.
