Packing Your Storage Device

This section describes how to pack your media.

To pack your storage device

  1. Make sure that you package your equipment appropriately. Your shipper can provide packing guidelines.


    Although AWS has a number of internal controls and procedures to prevent loss, damage or disclosure of your data, AWS is not responsible for damages associated with loss or inadvertent disclosure of data; or the loss, damage, or destruction of the physical hardware. You should always retain a back-up copy of your data. For information about failed jobs, see Failed Jobs.

  2. Enclose your device and your device’s power supply, power cable, and interface cables.

  3. For an Amazon S3 import or export job, enclose your filled-out packing slip. For an Amazon EBS or Amazon Glacier import job, make sure the bar code from the PDF is taped to your device, and the shipping information is on the outside of the box containing your device.
