The Backup List allows you to go back in time, and browse the contents of an earlier backup of your device. From the Backup List, you can switch between viewing the current state of your device, and any of its earlier states.
To access the Backup List, click the Backups button in the upper toolbar.
The window is divided in 4 sections:
💡Tip: The green status icon indicates which state you are currently viewing.
The first element in the list points to your device. By default, this is the active item, marked by a green status icon to its left.
|Data Refresh||Backup initiated by iMazing to display your latest data.|
|Data Transfer||Created when transferring data to a new device, the source device is backed up first.|
|Import||Not created with iMazing 2, but archived by iMazing 2.|
|Manual||Backup initiated by the user.|
The 3 buttons to the right offer additional options:
Search a backup by its name, date, label, iOS version or backup reason.
Available actions for the selected item(s).
Loads the selected backup so that you can browse its contents. The status icon to the left of the browsed backup version will be green the next time you open the Backups window, letting you easily identify which version you are browsing.

💡Tip: Double-clicking a backup in the list is equivalent to clicking the View button.

If the Device item is selected, and not a backup version, this button's label changes to Delete All and the resulting action is the deletion of all versions of the backup.
