System Time Issues


"The difference between the requested time and the current time is too large" or "Your computer clocks are not synchronized" are among the common errors Amazon S3 users face. These errors often occur when users computer system time is not synchronized properly. Amazon returns an error code if a request does not come in a certain time interval.


To Resolve a System Time Issue

  1. Open Control panel.
  2. Select Date and Time
  3. Click Change time zone.

  1. Set the timezone that suits for your current location. In case the same timezone was set before, reset it again.
  2. In Date and Time settings, specify the correct date and time.

You can also re-syncronize net time using the following command:

w32tm /resync
