The article shows how to import the backup file from your local machine to your BackupGuard WordPress plugin.

Press Import button to import one of your backups into BackupGuard dashboard

Choose Local PC option and press Next button

Click on the Browse to have access to the files of your local machine

Choose the respective archive you want to import and press Open

After, press the Import button

That's it! Then just wait for the process to complete.

If you need to restore the backup after importing it, you can check for the instructions here.

Sometimes, depending on server configurations we're unable to import large backup archives, e.g. in our case the limitation was set 32MB. In all those cases you should upload your backups using one of your favorite FTP clients. If you upload the archive in /...wordpress installation path/wp-content/uploads/backup-guard/ directory, it will be automatically detected and will be listed in the dashboard.
