I've put data up in an S3 Bucket. Somehow the folder immediately inside the bucket has an empty folder name. No idea how this happened, but for some reason S3 allows it.

Now I can't get at any of the files inside of this folder using standard S3 browsers because of course none of them allows an empty folder name.

Has anyone dealt with this problem before? Any ideas on what I might be able to do?

I am not sure about why this empty folder created, sometimes I feel that it is a temp folder created by S3 and sometimes I feel that it is something wrong because of any third party connected to S3.
I deal with this folder or delete it through the amazon console https://console.aws.amazon.com/s3/home this is the only way I could delete this folder.
