So, I have created these snapshots for few of my EC2 instances. I want a way to import the contents of the snapshot into an S3 bucket. How can I do this?

First, your snapshots are already stored in S3 but you will not be able to see it. So, why do you want to keep the same contents in S3?

But still, I will provide you with a way to do this. Follow these steps, so that you can get your EBS contents into S3.

  1. First, create an EBS volume with the available snapshot
  2. Create an EC2 instance and attach this volume to it
  3. Now, copy the contents of this volume into S3 straight from your instance using AWS CLI commands
  4. Terminate the EC2 instance and delete the EBS volume to stop getting billed for them

This is one way to do it, but if you provide a more explanatory question, I can provide a better solution. Hope this helps!
