  • Support for Additional Amazon S3 Providers

    Beyond Compare already supports Amazon S3 profiles but that support is limited exclusively to Amazon's own servers, and it would seem only to a specific path scheme.

    The first problem this poses is that it does not permit usage of alternative S3-compatible storage providers, such as Wasabi and a host of others (see this list for some examples:

    The second problem is that there are some cases when using an alternative path scheme is necessary to access S3 buckets, including the path-style scheme and region-specific schemes (e.g.,

    Both of these problems can be resolved, I hope, by simply adding a couple of options to the S3 profile.

    Here's what the settings look like in Nextcloud. Some of these settings are probably not needed for Beyond Compare, but the very minimum needed to support most use cases, including region-specific servers and alternative S3 providers, is probably just the hostname (and possibly the port).

    BC4's Amazon S3 support is limited to Amazon itself, but adding support for Amazon-compatible hosts is something I can add to our Customer Wishlist.
