Known Issues

Finder.app will write .DS_Store files to the remote volume

You can workaround this with setting defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true.

Saving a file in TextEdit.app will attempt to create a folder /Temporary Items on the remote volume. On some servers this may fail due to a permission failure or because the name of the folder is not allowed as in S3.

You will get the error message Bucket name is not DNS compatible. Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance..

Writing files to S3 compatible third party service provider may fail

The S3 interoperable service must support multipart uploads.

In Finder.app, creating a new top level folder in S3 fails with Interoperability failure. Bucket name is not DNS compatible. Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance.

A bucket name in S3 cannot have whitespace in the filename. Because a new folder created with Finder.app is named Untitled Folder the operation fails.
