Use Backups to Rollback Files

BackupsBackups - Backups is what we call our automatic backup system. contains all of your server's backups. Vault will automatically backup your server at least once a day or as often as every 6 hours depending on your settings. And you can make your own backups manually. It's very simple to use it to rollback your entire server to a previous backup. You can also rollback specific folders and files.

Where to Find Backups

From anywhere in your server's Manage page, click on Backups on the left side of Command Center under the gear icon.

Creating a Backup

Backups won't let you do a rollback unless you've made a backup within the last hour. Creating a new manual backup is really simple. Just press the Create button on the Vault backups page.
