When changing the Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume type from io1 to gp3, there is generally no data loss as long as the operation is performed correctly. However, it's essential to understand the implications and considerations involved in this process to minimize the risk of any unexpected issues. Here are some key points to consider: ######IMPORTANT##### Backup Data: Before making any changes to EBS volume types, it's recommended to create backups of your data to prevent any potential loss. This ensures that you have a copy of your data in case of any unexpected issues during the transition

I would answer this more directly: The answer is no, there is no data loss when modifying a volume from one volume-type to another.
