Test your Backups
It is possible that a Backup archive could be corrupted whilst being created or downloaded.
For this reason we recommend you:
- unpack and review the content of a Backup archive after download (can you see files and database?), and
- compare the size of this Backup archive with the most recent one (is it significantly different?).
You should also learn how to restore a website Backup archive using:
- a desktop server (example: XAMPP) or
- a separate Hosting Account online
so you can periodically check that Backup archives have not been corrupted.
