How to restore a backup of your GitHub repository

After Cloudback created a backup of your GitHub repository, you may need to restore the backup at some point. The page describes the steps that should be taken to restore the backup.

To restore a backup, click on the restore icon on the repository card:

Cloudback uses a separate GitHub application to restore the backups. You can install the application manually using the following link. If the restore application is not installed, you will be asked to do so in the modal window:

restore

After the restore application was installed, select the repository name where you want to restore the backup. Keep in mind that Cloudback will create a new repository, therefore the repository name should not be taken. Type the repository name and click on the ‘Restore’ button to start the restore process:
