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.

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.

Using the Restore/Migrate Page

  1. From the BackupBuddy menu, navigate to the Restore/Migrate page.


  2. Hover over a backup file name and select View & Restore File.


  3. Click the "eye" icon to view the contents of any text-based file. The file-viewer will then appear.


  4. Select the files to be restored then click Restore Selected.


  5. Click OK to confirm the restore and watch the restore status complete.
