This is how the backups page looks. As you may notice there are three different types:


Backup Type Description
Game Internal backups Game internal backups are made throughout the day. These backups simply contain the savegame. Making it easy to roll your save game back a few hours rather than a whole day.
Server Backups Server backups are daily incremental backups of your server made once per day. These backups will restore the entire server back to a specific point. Including the configurations.
Database Backups These backups are self titled. They are simply backup the database for your server. (Useful for games like Arma and CS:GO)
