2 thoughts on “How to Restore Single Files using Total Upkeep Premium

    • Hello Russell-
      There are a couple of situations in which you’d want to restore a single file. For example, if you find an image that is missing on one of your posts, you may be able to restore it from a backup. You might also want to restore a previous version of wp-config.php if your configuration needs to be reverted. Or, you may have noticed that one of your WordPress core files has been altered by running a checksum verification. Generally speaking though, if you don’t know which files you need to restore to resolve an issue, restoring a full backup might be a better option.
