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.

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:

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