comment How to move files between two S3 buckets with minimum cost?
I had a great experience with s3s3mirror. I was able to set it up on a m1.small EC2 node and copy 1.5 million objects in about 2 hours. Setup was a little tough, due to my unfamiliarity with Maven and Java, but it only took a few apt-get commands on Ubuntu to get everything installed. One last note: If (like me) you're worried about running an unknown script on a big, important s3 bucket, create a special user with read-only access on the copy-from bucket and use those credentials. Zero chance of accidental deletion.
