    • View Backed-Up Versions: Click on the item to see all its backed-up versions.
  3. Compare Versions
    • Side-by-Side Comparison: The current version in your store is displayed on the left, and the backed-up version is on the right, making it easy to compare changes.

    • If the restoration is successful, you will see a success message. If there is an error, try again. If the problem persists, contact our support team.

Items Supported for Automatic Restoration

BackupMaster can restore the following items:

  • Products
  • Smart Collections
  • Custom Collections
  • Themes
  • Blogs and Blog Posts
  • Files
  • Pages
  • Customers

Items Supported for Viewing Only

Some items, such as Policies, Shipping Zones, and Saved Searches, can be backed up and viewed in our app but not restored directly. This is due to Shopify API restrictions that prevent updating or creating these types of items. You can view these items and restore them manually in your store.

Restoring Inventory Levels for Specific Products

If you need to restore only inventory levels for specific products:

  • Choose a Location: Select the location for which you need to restore inventory levels.
  • Download CSV: Download a CSV file with inventories showing quantities for that location.
  • Adjust Manually: Open the CSV file, check the inventory levels, and manually adjust them in Shopify.


By following these steps, you can efficiently restore individual items, ensuring minimal disruption to your business operations.
