    1. Click “Restore”

    2. Click “Upload backup files”

    3. Select your files, and click to upload them.

    Best wishes,

    Hello david,

    it works fine for restoring plugin, themes, databases, and settings.

    but i have a backed up files (the uploads folder) that it sizes are about 700mb, is there any other way than that ?

    You can just unzip it on your PC, and transfer the contents of the resulting “uploads” folder by FTP into wp-content/uploads.


    I have uninstalled / reinstalled etc. Progress screen does nothing. Upon refresh, this error shows.

    “Parameter not found: oauth_token – need to reauthenticate this site with Dropbox (if this fails, then you can also try wiping your settings from the Expert Settings section) (Mar 24 21:10:25)”

    the client’s site had a fight with a plugin update and broke code. Trying to restore (every 12 hours (100+100) to dropbox. So I have tons of backups. But can’t use them. When I attempt to manually upload to the drap/drop box, I get “Unknown Server Response” after each file progress bar reaches 100.

    So lost. Any assistance would be great. Thank you.
