I pulled some information out of an Amazon Glacier vault, but I was charged a fee—why?

You can retrieve some of your total Amazon Glacier storage (prorated daily) without extra charges. Retrieving larger amounts of data from your vaults is subject to extra charges, known as retrieval fees.

For more information about data retrievals, see the Amazon Glacier FAQs.

To minimize potential charges, you can set up a retrieval policy for your account—for more information, see Amazon Glacier Data Retrieval Policies.
