Description (last modified by dkocher)

I can upload large files just fine but if I try to rename them I get the following error:

The specified copy source is larger than the maximum allowable size for a copy source: 5368709120. Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance.

I know that S3 can't actually rename files and forces you to copy and delete them behind the scenes but surely there must be a way of moving or renaming a large file after upload? It would be bizarre if that were not possible.

We use multipart copy for bigger files to workaround this limitation of S3. Is your endpoint different from s3.amazonaws.com?

No, my endpoint is s3.amazonaws.com.
