- Restore a backup file listed in your Course backup area, User private backup area, or Automated backups: Select the backup file you wish to restore in the list, and then click on the Restore link to the right to begin the restore process.

- Scroll down to review the items to be restored, then click Next.
- Scroll down to click Perform restore; or click Cancel to abandon restoring the course.
- After waiting for the restore process to complete, a success message should display.
- Click Continue and you should see the content has been successfully moved into the destination course.
