You will need to restore the backup to a new FSx file system, retrieve the target file(s), then delete the restored filesystem. See Restoring backups

You cannot restore individual files or folders from an FSx backup. However, you can use an available backup to create a new file system and then access the files you need. Restoring a backup to a new file system takes the same amount of time as creating a new file system, and the data restored from the backup is lazy-loaded onto the file system - so this can still be an efficient way to restore a single file or folder.

Hi, good question

As per the documentation

You can't restore to an existing Amazon FSx file system, and you can't restore individual files or folders.
