Choose a snapshot of a GitHub repository backup to restore

In order to restore, BackHub will create a new repository in your GitHub account and restore the data via the GitHub API into this newly created repository. In the restore dialog please type in a name that is different from the original repository or any other repository in your account.

You can choose whether you want your repository to be private or public.
