How to Restore Backups?

Step 1:  If the backup file is on your computer, upload it to the server.


If you have a backup file on your hard drive you must upload it to the /backups directory.  This can be done through FTP or by clicking on the "Click here for a list of current backups" link in the main backup menu.  Then, click the "Upload files to current directory" button.


Step 2:  In the backup menu, select the file to restore.



All the backup files in the /backups directory will be listed in the dropdown menu.  Choose the file you want to restore, and then click the "Select Restore Options" button.


Step 3:  Select the items to restore.



In the above file, all "E-mail" items were backed up. (Note that items not backed up have a gray check box).


At this stage you can choose which items to restore.  For example, in the above picture we are choosing to restore all e-mail items except for vacation messages.  After you are finished, click the "Restore Selected Items" button.  If the restore is successful, you will be taken back to the main backup menu.
