Any gotchas with Archive storage class?

Post by damga » Sat Feb 08, 2020 7:30 am

Has anyone used Google Archive Storage class?

I intend to backup my photos and videos there, so basically files will 99.9% of the time be only added, almost never deleted or modified. Retrieved in emergency only if other backups fail.

Any gotchas to look for when backing up with HSBS?
Things I have in mind: maybe HSBS always reads full files to compare hashes which means it retrieves data every time and I will incur retrieval fees for files that have not changed?
