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:
