Hi
Regarding to WHM Backup Restoration, there is something strange when I restore a backup for any account.
If there is an old backup includes (some files in File Manager, emails and there is no any databases)
Today, I created a new database and changed some files & emails.

When I try to restore the old backup, it replaces all the new files & emails with the old files & emails but unfortunately it keeps the new database. Why it doesn't delete this new database?

Databases are handled differently than files, it's an entirely different process to backup and restore databases than to do the same with files. There isn't a way to change the settings in how a restore is processed, no.
