Clone your GitHub backup directly from BackHub servers

A few days ago we have released a new feature that let’s you clone any of your GitHub repository backups directly from the BackHub servers. You can clone any of the snapshots available for the particular backup. In BackHub, open the panel of the backup you want to clone, select the snapshot in the footer of the panel and copy the clone URL.

For this feature to work you must have an SSH key stored in your GitHub account. We’re fetching this key to authenticate the client when cloning. For new users, this feature is enabled by default. For existing users, it must be switched on in the user settings.

This feature is part of our effort towards enabling you to access your GitHub backup even in case GitHub is temporarily not available. We recommend to note down the clone URL so you can clone without relying on the web frontend.
