Yes, I’m facing same issues. We are moving to Dropbox. The digitalocean spaces sucks!

I’m using spaces as CDN for profile images, and the spaces today is too slow for that. I’m moving to local storage too, but I want download the files and I can’t do it :/ (we need a “zip and download folder” option, please :D ).
Anyway, now I’m downloading the content of spaces using the code that I found here:

Facing the same issue, any help here?

Same issue as well.

Reply from Digital Ocean support on this:

While there’s not a direct way to create a tarball or zip file from the UI or using s3cmd, you can access Spaces using pretty much any software that supports S3. My initial recommendation would be CyberDuck since it’s available for Windows and MacOS.

CyberDuck actually has connection profiles and details on how to configure this quickly below:

We also have a quick-start guide for CyberDuck in our product docs:

The benefit here is that CyberDuck will allow you to access your Space(s) as if they were normal directories, similar to if you were using FTP/SFTP.

I got to download files through Cyberduck version 6.9.4. Just follow the tutorial.

Tried with version 7.* but no success.
