The AWS documentation for using native restore specifies that restoring from multiple files is allowed:

To avoid errors while restoring multiple files, make sure that all the backup files have the same prefix, and that no other files use that prefix.

The following example shows multiple-file restore.

exec msdb.dbo.rds_restore_database @restore_db_name='database_name', @s3_arn_to_restore_from='arn:aws:s3:::bucket_name/bakup_file_*'

How many files can I restore from?


There is a limit of 10 backup files.

When attempting to restore from more than 10 backup files, the following error occurs:

The Restore task is unable to restore from more than 10 backup file(s). Please reduce the number of files matched and try again.
