Default Storage Classes Overview
The Default Storage Classes feature allows you to upload files directly to any storage class on Amazon S3.
The Storage Class directive is specified as part of the upload request, so no extra requests and no extra charges involved to upload files directly to any storage class on your choice.
This is a set of rules. Each rule consists of Bucket name (or mask) and File name (or mask) which identify one or more objects to which the rule applies.
When you upload the file with S3 Browser, it looks up for the matching rule. If corresponding rule found, the storage class defined in the rule automatically applied. If multiple rules found, the first matching rule applied.
The rules are stored locally in S3 Browser's settings folder. If you define the rules on the Machine A and then upload the files from the Machine B, the rules are not applied. You may transfer rules to another computer, they are located in the %APPDATA%\S3Browser folder in the bucket.rules file.
