    Good Morning,

    We're trying to connect to use the CloudBerry for Mac client to dump our data on an AWS snowball, but there doesn't seem to be an option in the Mac client to use a local snowball. Is it a Windows Only feature?

    Hello . This is possible if you use Snowball Edge (and not possible if you use the older version of Snowball).

    1. Just create a new storage account of "S3 compatible" type and back up your data there.
    2. Then when the data is delivered to Amazon and uploaded to S3, you will need to re-synchronize the storage account that points to Amazon S3.
    3. After that you should be able to continue incremental upload straight to S3.

    Should you have any difficulties or questions in the process - feel free to drop me an email to and I will make sure you get the answers.

    Thanks to both for the response. We have the "regular" snowball (not the Edge), so that's not an option.

    If we copy the data with the Amazon Snowball client and send back to load into the S3, will the CloudBerry client recognize it as "valid data" and only sync the changes or will it trigger all new upload? i.e. does the CloudBerry tag the file as "uploaded by CB" and not changed or is it just the file size/hash that triggers a "new file need to upload" situation?

    Thank you!

    , CloudBerry doesn't use such tags, but it does create a specific folder structure within the cloud storage - so no, unfortunately the data will not be recognized as "valid data".
    If there's just several large files you can actually recreate the folder structure manually - but I bet there's thousands of them, and this will make it a nightmare.
