Preview and restore individual files with the backup browser

Meet the backup browser.

We’ve put together a brand new way to restore your files within a backup. The new backup browser features individual file restores and file previews along with some behind-the-scenes magic to make everything generally faster. Now, you can preview a file to make sure it’s the one you need before you restore it.

Backup Browser

Browse your files

Even if you don’t need to restore anything, the backup browser is a pretty cool way to dig through some of your WordPress files and check them out. It has text file, image, and video previews, so it’s super easy for you to find and restore that awesome .gif your editor deleted.

Restore one file at a time

Now, when you click “View Backup,” you can either restore or download files instead of having to download or restore the entire backup. Pretty handy, right?

Preview your text files in style

We’ve hooked up @leaverou’s awesome Prism, which adds syntax highlighting to your PHP, JavaScript, CSS, and other files you have stowed away in your backups.

Admire your .gif collection

The new backup browser allows you to preview any of your images before you restore them. That way, you know for sure you’re restoring the file you need. (Even .gifs! 🙂 )


Watch your videos

Did you accidentally delete that video of your kid’s coolest invention to date? Well, now you can watch and restore the little genius’ video for the rest of your family to enjoy.

  3. Thank you very much for this important added restore feature. Just last month I needed to restore only a single file and couldn’t. Nice addition!
