If the comment in the NOTES column for a specific cluster includes PITR, point in time recovery is enabled on the cluster. When point in time recovery is enabled, the backup can be used to restore your cluster to a state at any given time since the backup was taken.
Use the icons on the left side of the Backups tab to restore or delete backups:
DatabasesCopyRefreshHighlight a backup in the list, and click the Recover Backup icon to open a dialog that allows you to restore a cluster from the selected backup. Specify a name for the cluster, and click the Recover button to continue. A popup confirms that the cluster is being restored; close the popup and navigate to the Clusters tab to monitor the restoration process.
DatabasesCopyDeleteHighlight one or more backups in the list and click the Delete Backup icon to delete the selected backups. A popup will ask you to confirm that you wish to delete the selected backups before the backups are actually deleted.
