### **Four main steps of the initial backups,**

(i) **Process initiation**
Process initiation contains verifying the credentials and transmitting them to CodeGuard.

(ii) **File pick up**
File pick up begins with an analysis of the file structure and creation of a git repository within Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

(iii)** File transit**

The transit process begins after the file structure has been analyzed and the list of the files to be transmitted is finalized.
Files are then transferred to EC2.

After all files are transferred to EC2, they are committed to the git repository on EC2, but do not remain there for long.

As soon as the git commit is finished, the files are compressed and sent to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), where they are encrypted using industry-leading AES 256 bit techniques.

(iv)** Final delivery.**
The last step of process is the deletion of the files from their temporary storage on EC2.

### **How to Restore**

(i) **Request Zip**
You can perform a manual restore yourself by requesting a zip file of a backup & manually replacing files on your site.

(ii) **Restore All**
CodeGuard will attempt to automatically restore by replacing your current content with content from a backup. This is a beta feature.

(iii) **Restore File(s)
**Select specific files to replace. This is a beta feature.

Now you have your webiste backup in AWS Cloud for FREE !!!
