Exporting changes to the data repository - Amazon File Cache

Exporting changes to the data repository

You can export data and metadata changes, including POSIX metadata, from Amazon File Cache to a linked Amazon S3 or NFS data repository. Associated POSIX metadata includes ownership, permissions, and timestamps. To export changes from the cache, use HSM commands. When you export a file or directory using HSM commands, your cache exports only data files and metadata that were created or modified since the last export. For more information, see Exporting files using HSM commands.


For Amazon File Cache to export your data to your linked data repository, it must be stored in a UTF-8 compatible format.
