I just setup a new Amazon S3 Bucket (my first one). And everything works fine, but.. It's creating random files:

e.g. a file named as 2013-07-16-11-15-52-F48E3174FF2FD2C2

What is this? How can I prevent this?

Those are most likely Amazon S3 logging files - try disabling through the Management Console as described here.
