Creating S3 buckets on Mounted S3 Storage

Windows and macOS, operating systems supported by Mountain Duck, treat buckets as folders in case the S3 storage is mounted as a disk drive. In both operating systems, the default folder name contains spaces. This violates bucket naming conventions (refer to S3 bucket and key naming policies), therefore you cannot create a new bucket directly on the mounted S3 storage. To create a bucket on a mounted S3 storage, create a folder with a name complying with DNS naming conventions elsewhere and copy it to the root of the mounted S3 storage.
