    I'm trying to figure out whether Synthetic Full will be reasonable with Glacier storage class. Does anyone have a sense of what is going on behind the scenes?

    Is it just marking the old base version and increments as deleted and then uploading a complete new base version of that particular file? If so, this should not trigger any Glacier requests, right?

    Or is there something more complicated going on?

    I was thinking of doing incrementals daily, and then Synthetic Full every two weeks. I don't mind having a 4 hour Glacier request delay once every two weeks, if that is what is needed. But I'd rather not be paying for tons of requests.

    Rob,

    Synthetic full backup is incompatible with glacier tier AWS S3 storage. the software will not be able to combine the files stored in glacier storage. If previous uploads are in the glacier tier, the synthetic full backup will be ignored, and the software will upload the image from scratch.

    AWS S3 Glacier does not support object aggregation,
