    Hi, Sergey! Thank you very much for your attention.

    I now realize that I can edit, rename, even delete any or all the backup plans that nothing will happen with my data stored in Glacier.

    The problem is that I still do not know how to delete any file, folder or archive in Glacier.

    I saw a few scripts (I transcribe one below which was taken from aws tutorials) which supposedly let you delete the files, but quite honestly I have no idea how to use them.

    All I want is to be able to DELETE files, folders, archies which have been uploaded to Glacier.

    Would you know how to do that?

    Fastglacier let's me do that, but I would prefer using Cloudberry.

    Thanks again for your attention.


    using System;
    using Amazon.Glacier;
    using Amazon.Glacier.Transfer;
    using Amazon.Runtime;

    class ArchiveDeleteHighLevel_GettingStarted
    static string vaultName = "examplevault";
    static string archiveId = "*** Provide archive ID ***";

    public static void Main(string[] args)
    var manager = new ArchiveTransferManager(Amazon.RegionEndpoint.USWest2);
    manager.DeleteArchive(vaultName, archiveId);
    catch (AmazonGlacierException e) { Console.WriteLine(e.Message); }
    catch (AmazonServiceException e) { Console.WriteLine(e.Message); }
    catch (Exception e) { Console.WriteLine(e.Message); }
    Console.WriteLine("To continue, press Enter");

    Thanks, Sergey (I presume you are NOT Sergeyv, am I right?)

    I am kind of stupid and slow, so please bear with me and correct my reasoning, because it most certainly has a flaw in it:

    a) As per Sergeyv, there is "no way" to delete a file (archive) once it is stored in Glacier;

    b) As per Sergey and the AWS documentation "You can delete an Amazon Glacier vault only if there are no archives in the vault..."


    Since there is "no way" to delete my files inside the vault and since it is impossible to delete the vault without my first deleting the files inside that vault, I am, therefore, stuck with Amazon and the undeletable files and vaults "per omnia secula seculorum".

    Is this right? Am I missing something?

    I does not seem reasonable that one should not be able to delete files (archives), so that one can finally be able to delete the vault.

    Thank you Sergeyv for the help. Much appreciated.

    Can I delete vaults, WITHOUT EMPTYING THEM?

    If this is possible, I could create a NEW vault and upload the new .rar file to that new vault and then delete the OLD VAULT.

    If I am not mistaken, I can create up to 1000 different vaults, so that would not be a limitation..
