Help with restore from snapshot

My flash card went bad yesterday so I flashed a new card, installed samba and pulled in the latest snapshot. When I did the restore nothing seems to happen but after an hour I tried to access it and it said lost connection. I left it overnight and this morning my light automation seemed to work but I could not access the web interface. I am now starting over now re-flashing and restoring.
My Questions:
Should I use Restore Selected or Wipe and Restore?
When I click the restore button should I receive some feedback if it starts working or does it just start leaving the restore screen in place?
How long should it take to restore? I am using a Raspberry Pi 3, my configuration is small to medium in size.
I have seen a restore using the ssh commands does this work better or are they same?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
