You have the option of only backing up part of your account...

... or generating a full backup, which we'll do now. Click the Full Backup button.

Select the destination, then click Generate Backup.

That's it! We've just created a full backup to the home directory.

To download a copy of the backup to your computer, simply click it's link.

That's all there is to it!

Restoring files is just as easy. Click the Backup Wizard icon again.

Then click the Restore button.

Choose what type of restore you want to do... in this case, let's restore the Home Directory.

Locate the Home Directory backup...

Then click Upload.

The files have been restored!
