Apologies for another Toolkit post...

When you clone a website you have the option to create a restore point when you copy data back to the live site. The help text explains that this can be used to roll back the changes if anything goes wrong. That's great, but the restore point is not showing under "Backup and Restore".

I have found the snapshots in ~/.wp-toolkit/snapshots/, so they are there. However, as far as I can tell there is no easy way to use the snapshots to restore the changes. I tried copying the snapshots to ~/wordpress-backups but they don't show up under the "Backup and Restore" tab (I think because of the file names?).

# rsync -av --chown=example:example ~example/.wp-toolkit/snapshots/*.zip ~example/wordpress-backups/

I haven't been to find any documentation about how to restore a website using a restore point created while copying data. Is using a restore point a manual process, or is the restore point supposed to be listed under "Backups and Restore"?
