Error while uploading file to S3 bucket using Python boto3 library

0 votes

I am getting this error when I am trying to upload a file from my local computer to S3 bucket.

Here is the code I am using:

import boto3
s3 = boto3.resource('s3')
s3.create_bucket(Bucket= 'niteshbucket')
s3.Object('niteshbucket', 'helloworld.txt').upload_file(Filename='C:\Users\Nitesh\Desktop\helloworld.txt')

The error is basically saying that you have a escape character used in string. So as in the path mentioned for your file that you wish to upload in s3 bucket. Instead of using / you are supposed to use // so that / is not treated as a escape character.

import boto3
s3 = boto3.resource('s3')
s3.create_bucket(Bucket= 'niteshbucket')
s3.Object('niteshbucket', 'helloworld.txt').upload_file(Filename='C:\\Users\\Nitesh\\Desktop\\helloworld.txt')
