I do understand how to sync between local disk in droplet to AWS S3. For instance, the following command make sure the local disk is sync with AWS S3.

aws s3 sync s3://wenote-cloud-storage . --delete

We would like to use Digital Ocean Space, as the mirror for AWS S3. Is it possible to sync directly from AWS S3 bucket, to DO Space (Including the E-Tag MD5 info being transferred as well)


We know how to sync between droplet local disk to DO Space.

But, how about sync between AWS S3 directly with DO Space?
