    Hi Rodrigo,

    I think you missed the provided rationale as to why Snowball is incorrect. It’s already mentioned in the explanation that:

    Using the AWS Snowball service to migrate the 80 TB of data to AWS is incorrect since the total amount of data that need to be migrated is 80 TB which is over the 72 TB usable capacity limit of Snowball. Take note that although Snowball has two types of device model: 50 TB and 80 TB, you can only store a total of 42 TB and 72 TB respectively based on their usable capacity limits. You have to use AWS Snowball Edge instead.


    A Snowball 80 TB device only has a 72 TB of usable space, and not exactly 80 TB. This is clearly mentioned in the explanation as well as in the provided reference link:
