Hi

I need to use this feature in WHM 'Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File' and to use it

The files must be in one of these directories on the server: /home, /home2, /home3, /root, /usr, /usr/home, /web

You must upload the file to one of the above locations before using this feature.
So how I can do it?

I use WinSCP to upload the file to a normal cPanel account, then in SSH command line (as root) I move it to /root or /home

I see that your forum info shows "cPanel/WHM Access Level Reseller Owner".
If that is true then you don't have root access, and then you don't have option (Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File) in your WHM either.

I'm the Owner and I have Root access to WHM and I can login to SSH

Can you explain how you do it with SSH command line (as root) and move to /root or /home
If the file is in /home/USERNAME/ then In SSH command prompt (as root) you move the file like this:

mv /home/USERNAME/FILENAME /root

that moves file FILENAME to /root directory
