S3Sync.exe -AWSAccessKeyId XXXXXXX -AWSSecretAccessKey XXXXXXXXX -SyncDirection upload -LocalFolderPath "D:\abc" -BucketName BUCKETNAME


First XXXXXXXX put here access key , second XXXXXXXX put here Secret Key, third change file location with D:\abc , forth change Bucket name with BUCKETNAME.

and create bat file  like s3rsync.bat make entry below the same
cd \
cd D:\S3Sync
d:
@ECHO OFF
