Before You Begin

Before you start file-level restore, check the following prerequisites:

  • To recover files and folders of an EC2 instance from a backup that is stored in the archive backup repository, you must retrieve the archived data manually before you begin the file-level recovery operation. For more information on data retrieval, see Retrieving Data From Archive.
  • The 443 port must be open on worker instances to allow inbound network access from the machine from which you plan to open the file-level recovery browser. To enable access for a worker instance, update the security group specified in worker instance settings to add an inbound rule. It is recommended that you run a file-level restore test before you start file-level restore operations in a specific AWS Region. For more information, see Testing Configurations for FLR.
