Some time ago I downloaded files from the browser

Who can help me with this problem?


I have the same problem.

  • have a folder in the DO-S3-space
  • I have uploaded files using python/S3FileSystem
  • I can access all the files from python/S3FileSystem
  • I can access only a random selection of the files using my browser on

My account on the browser should be the master who has full privileges. It was through that same browser UI I created the credentials with witch the python code can successfully fetch the files.
