CrossFTP comes with full support of Amazon Glacier on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It allows you to create vaults, move data to vaults and request to download the data back to your computer.
Connect to Amazon GlacierYou can create a new Amazon Glacier site in Sites -> Site Manager, and choose the Protocol as Amazon Glacier/HTTPS.
New Amazon Glacier Site
- Host: the Amazon Glacier's region endpoint, see the endpoint definitions in: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#glacier_region. The default region is US East (Northern Virginia) Region.
- Access Key & Secret: you can find your Security Credentials from the Amazon AWS page https://aws-portal.amazon.com/gp/aws/developer/account/index.html?ie=UTF8&action=access-key
Create VaultYou can create new vaults at the root folder of the Amazon Glacier site by choosing New Folder.
You can upload/backup your local files to the Amazon Glacier site by Transfer / Drag & Drop local files to the remote site. By default, all files transferred to Amazon Glacier will be stored in CrossFTP's local cache pool with the file metadata, so that you can browse your vault inventory directly. However, after your request a file download/retrieval, normally it will take 4~5 hours before Amazon can finish the preparation to initiate the download of file.
Retrieve Vault InventoryAttention: if you upload files using other Amazon Glacier tools, or the vault's content seems incorrect, you need to retrieve the vault inventory.
If you want to retrieve the content of the vault inventory, you can simply press the Refresh folder button. CrossFTP will confirm with you whether you want to download the content of the vault inventory. Again, it normally takes 4~5 hours before Amazon can finish the preparation to initiate the download of file.
CrossFTP is a FTP, SFTP, FXP, WebDav, Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier and Google Cloud Storage client for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
