To move data from Amazon S3 Glacier to Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, you can use the S3 Glacier Deep Archive Transition option. Here are the steps to do so:

Create an S3 Lifecycle policy: In order to transition data from Glacier to Glacier Deep Archive, you will need to create an S3 Lifecycle policy that specifies the transition rules. You can create an S3 Lifecycle policy using the S3 Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDKs.

Specify the transition rule: When creating the S3 Lifecycle policy, you can specify a transition rule that automatically moves objects from Glacier to Glacier Deep Archive after a specified number of days or based on other criteria. You can also specify the minimum storage duration for Glacier Deep Archive to ensure that the data remains in the archive for the required period.

Monitor the transition progress: Once the S3 Lifecycle policy is created and applied to the Glacier objects, you can monitor the transition progress using the S3 Management Console or programmatically using the AWS SDKs. The transition process may take some time depending on the size of the objects and the number of objects being transitioned.

It's important to note that once the data is transitioned to Glacier Deep Archive, retrieval times may be longer than for Glacier. Therefore, it's important to consider the retrieval times and costs before transitioning data to Glacier Deep Archive.

Additionally, you may want to consider creating a backup of your data before transitioning it to Glacier Deep Archive, as retrieval times can be longer and there may be additional costs associated with retrieving the data.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
