Please note: Books files have non-specific file names and it will not show the book title. Individual books are .epub files that we see as folders, and the whole folder should be restored.

 

4. Once downloaded, drag and drop the files from the restore you created to the appropriate folder on your computer.

Once you have moved the files over, open the Books application on your computer to make sure that everything has restored correctly.
