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. UPS 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. Generate, print, and attach the pre-paid shipping label to the exterior of your package. See Shipping Your Storage Device for information on how to get your pre-paid shipping label.
