# Glacier Math

Want to figure out how much it will cost to retrieve a backup from Amazon’s new Glacier service? So simple:

The maximum rate for up to 10TB is $0.12 per GB. Can I just pay that and not worry about calculating it? If I did, my 6TB would cost me$720 to retrieve. It’s not a bad price but it’s double the price of buying two 3TB blank disks. I’ll stick with my system for now.
