Well, I think I messed up and need to download all the files I have been storing on storj for a while. There are 174,000 files at about 2TB total. Can anyone please tell me what the cost of downloading these is gonna run me? Then I am gonna have to re-upload them as for some reason I have misplaced my keys and will have to re-create my storj bucket as what I have is stored in Filezilla and I have NO IDEA if there is a way to extract it from there.
If someone can help with this it would be great. Thank you
Which keys are you missing? If you still have the encryption passphrase, downloading and reuploading shouldn’t be needed. How exactly do you have Filezilla setup? Is it using the native storj protocol or S3?
Now you can re-encrypt (please note - it will incur charges for egress!):
rclone move -P old:my-bucket new:my-bucket
However if you could not remember your encryption phrase and have not succeed to get an access grant/S3 credentials from the FileZilla configuration, then you likely would need to download your files back, then delete from the bucket and upload them back using a new access grant with a known encryption phrase.
Google “Base64 Decode”.
But be careful. If you use a website, they may log what you decode and then they have your key. Better look for a tool on github.com which you can run locally.
