Configuring what Amazon DataSync transfers

You can configure Amazon DataSync to transfer what you want and how it handles the data it moves. Some examples include:

  • Transferring an exact list of files or object by using a manifest.

  • Including or excluding certain types of data in your transfer by using a filter.

  • For recurring transfers, moving only the data that's changed since the last transfer

  • Overwriting data in the destination location to match what's in the source location.

  • Choosing which file or object metadata to preserve between your storage locations.

  • Specifying what kind of integrity checks you want DataSync to perform on your transferred data.
