Apparently when you restore a backup from a remote ssh server, the entire backup file is downloaded, then unzipped, then parsed so you can OK the restore, then downloaded ALL OVER AGAIN and unzipped to execute the restore. Can you say "time and bandwidth WASTE"???
Well, what if I only want to restore a single or subset of the available backup categories? Why does it not just DOWNLOAD ONCE then unzip, parse, restore? That would seem more rational and sensible.
