BackupBuddy's View and Restore Individual Files feature allows you to see the contents of your backup, view text-based file contents and restore selected files.

For example, this feature could be helpful if you need to revert back to an earlier version of your theme after making modifications to the stylesheet.

Caution: Restored files may overwrite existing files of the same name. Use caution when restoring, especially when restoring large numbers of files to avoid breaking the site.
