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

You can retrieve a part of your total Amazon Glacier storage without extra charges. If you retrieve larger amounts of data, you may pay retrieval fees. For more information about data retrievals, see the Amazon Glacier FAQs.

To minimize charges, set up a retrieval policy for your account.
