Restore A Database Backup

Database backups can easily be restored using Website Backup Bot! Because robots are superioir. Depending on the size of your backup file, the restore may take several hours. To restore a database backup, follow the steps below:

Note: A restore will overwrite the entire database, you will lose any data that was entered between the current database and the date you select to restore. Again, you will potentially lose data, so choose wisely.
