7. What items are supported for viewing only?

Any items that are not in the list of what we can restore, such as policies, orders, and shipping zones, can be backed up and viewed in the app but not restored directly due to Shopify API restrictions. You can view these items and restore them manually in your store.

8. Can I restore data to a state before installing the BackupMaster app?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to restore data to a state before installing the BackupMaster app. Our app starts pulling and saving data to our cloud backup storage only after installation. Therefore, only the data backed up after the app's installation can be restored.

9. What should I do if I encounter issues during restoration?
