I need pc software with a GUI that will allow me to sync a folder on my computer with a folder on my amazon s3 account. The syncing needs to be in real time. It should listen for changes and then sync those.

There are solutions for this to FTP but not amazon s3.

I have looked into http://www.cloudberrylab.com/free-amazon-s3-explorer-cloudfront-IAM.aspx but there is no automatic folder monitoring. There seems to be something you can do with a command line script. http://blog.cloudberrylab.com/2009/11/how-to-sync-local-folders-with-amazon.html and the backup software from cloudberry does real-time syncing but it's for backups so backup folders end up in the directory and that is not ideal.

Any ideas would be very appreciated

Thanks Phillip! Looks like it does. I will test this out and look into it more! –  Matt Jul 27 '12 at 1:36
I use it at work to sync various things, for something free for personal use it is quite nice. –  Phillip R. Jul 27 '12 at 1:38

AeroFS can do that - http://blog.aerofs.com/aerofss3-syncing-to-amazon-cloud-never-been-e

but they are only in private beta phase (and honestly the development is taking too long - years) so you will need invite to get it..
