Review of Cloudberry Explorer Pro - Linked with Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3


Being a Cloud technology fan and in particular services that are provided by AWS, I was interested to find a growing number of vendors writing software and applications that claim to blend and mesh with AWS services providing enhanced functionality and a better user experience. 

One of these vendors within this industry are Cloudberry Lab, who are an Advanced Technology Partner with AWS.  Looking into their products further I could see they heavily centred their solutions on Backup and Storage integration with a number of cloud providers.  I was specifically interested in their products that aligned with the AWS S3 Service.
Following an overview of their range of products I decided to download Cloudberry Explorer Pro for S3.  It claimed that Explorer for Amazon S3 provides a user interface to Amazon S3 accounts allowing to access, move and manage files across your local storage and S3 buckets”.  It also boasted a number of additional features, many of which are listed below:

This program is very far from being a good tool.
It was written by people who never used a commander-type file manager, it'd seem.

Just a few of the many annoyances:

- Usual key shortcuts don't work either at all, or not as they should (just hit tab and see if you can find your cursor!)
- Directory comparison opens a new view where everything is different
- You have to click a tiny button to refresh a view, the program is unable to detect changes neither locally nor remotely.  Ctrl-R is of course not working.
- You can try and ask them to fix/implement things, but there's seemingly no development of this program anymore.

The one redeeming feature; it can copy between two s3 buckets directly.
