Restore files from Amazon Glacier

in flag

The process of retrieving/restoring files from Amazon Glacier seems complex.

I was following, using the following commands, but I need help seeing how to open a vault and browse its contents to restore files (like opening a zip file).

Is this possible? Or is Amazon Glacier the wrong product?

The backups are uploaded from a Synology NAS app. If the NAS dies, we need a recovery process.

Commands I have run so far in AWS CLI:

# List available vaults within Glacier
aws glacier list-vaults --account-id 123456789

# Initiate retrieval job
aws glacier initiate-job --account-id 123456789 --vault-name VAULT_BACKUP --job-parameters "{\"Type\":\"inventory-retrieval\"}"

# Get inventory list
aws glacier get-job-output --account-id 123456789 --vault-name VAULT_BACKUP --job-id abcd12345 outfile.json

# Obtain required ArchiveId from JSON file
aws glacier initiate-job --account-id 123456789 --vault-name VAULT_BACKUP --job-parameters "{\"Type\":\"archive-retrieval\",\"ArchiveId\":\"qwerty12345\"}"
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
