Listing available backup snapshots

Every time FastBack runs, it creates a snapshot of your world. Snapshots are identified by the time they were created.

To see all snapshots in your backup of the current world, run

/backup list

Available snapshots:

Restoring a backup snapshot

You can restore your world from any snapshot in the backup by running

/backup restore 2022-10-02_10-11-12
Restoring 2022-10-02_10-11-12 to

This will create a copy of your world as it was when that snapshot was made.

Note that files in the current world are never touched by restore; the restored snapshot is placed in either your saves directory (in singleplayer mode) or under your system temp directory (in server mode). In either case, the full path to restore location will be output when the command completes.

To look at the restored snapshot, quit the current world and open the restored snapshot world. (In server mode, you’ll have to manually copy the restored files from the location displayed at the end of the command).
