Backups stored locally on your server are listed in the Local Archive Files tab on the Backup page. Hover over backups listed for additional options such as downloading the backup file, sending to another destination or restoring files.


Backup files listed in the Local Archives tab include random characteristics in their name for increased security. Each backup file includes details such as the date created, file size, status, type and statistics. The Backup File Status column includes verification that the backup is valid and contains all backup components needed for restore. Backups may display as invalid until they are completed, so click the refresh icon below the status message to re-verify the archive.

Download File

To download the backup zip, hover over the backup file name and click Download file.

Send File

To manually send the file to a remote destination, hover over the backup file name and click Send File. From here, you can select a destination for the backup.


View & Restore Files

New in BackupBuddy v4.0! Hover over a Local Archive File in the listing below and select "View & Restore Files" to see the contents of your backup, view text-based file contents, or restore files.
