Restoring the desired item version in Shopify

Often, you only need to restore a single product or collection in Shopify that was accidentally deleted or undo changes you made. Let’s examine how granular restore works in the BackupMaster app for Shopify.

1. Select the group to which the item belongs in the Backup Storage section of the dashboard.
