Step 3. Choose Restore Mode

In this article

    At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, choose whether you want to restore Amazon EFS file systems to the original or new location:

    • To restore EFS file systems with initial settings to the original AWS Region, select the Restore to the original location option.

    If you select this option, you will proceed directly to the Reason step of the wizard.

    Note

    Mind the following:

    • The original EFS file system will be removed after the restore process completes successfully.
    • The restored file systems will not be mounted to any EC2 instances even if the original file systems were mounted.
    • To restore EFS file systems to a different AWS Region or with different settings, select the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option.

    If you select this option, the Restore to Amazon EFS wizard will include additional steps for specifying the target AWS Region and file system settings.
