Step 5. Enable Encryption

In this article

    [This step applies only if you have selected the Restore to new location, or with different settings option at the Restore Mode step of the wizard]

    At the Encryption step of the wizard, choose whether the created file system with the restored files and folders must be encrypted with AWS KMS keys:

    • If you do not want to encrypt the files and folders or want to apply the encryption scheme existing on the source file system, select the Use original encryption scheme option.
    • If you want to encrypt the files and folders, select the Restore as encrypted file system option and choose the necessary KMS key from the Encryption key list.

    For a KMS key to be displayed in the list of available encryption keys, it must be stored in the AWS Region selected at step 4 and the IAM role specified for the restore operation must have permissions to the key.  For more information on KMS keys, see AWS Documentation.
