Trouble Restoring from Backup

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f739f148f88>

I’m having some difficulty restoring hassio from a backup. The background is the microsd card died, so I bought a new one. Installed HASSIO on it. Then I installed samba and can connect to it.

I was using some add on (I don’t remember specifically which), which took full snapshots and backed them up to gdrive. Those appear as TAR files. E.g.:

  • Full Snapshot 2020-06-27 17_54_19.tar

I’m not sure what to do with these exactly to restore from them. I tried putting the full tar in the backup directory in hassio (hoping it would show up as a snapshot), but it doesn’t. Anyone know what my next step is to restore from it?

Thank you, in advance, for your help. Really stuck.
