Invalid AWS S3 "PutObject" Requests on Directory Roots

AWS S3 backups are constantly trying to upload directory roots as objects , even though AWS does not consider directory roots as objects. This is causing me to see hundreds of thousands of excess PutObject requests, significantly increasing my AWS bill.

The software/firmware needs to be modified to not try and push the actual directory root, but rather just the objects within the directory. For example, “aws/obj_1.ext” should only see one PutObject request of “aws/obj_1.ext”, but the MyCloud software is also trying to make a PutObject request of “aws/”, which is technically invalid since the directory root is not considered an object within AWS S3.

Not sure how to run AWS S3 backups without causing unnecessary PutObject request charges for directory roots…
