I was browsing and cleaning my backups, when I accidentally slipped and selected 'restore' instead of 'delete' for an old backup. There was no way.of stopping the device from restoring a backup from 2014-02-02...

it needs double 'Are you sure' dialogs.

Yes this is the kind of built in frustration waiting to happen that proves this interface has its flaws if consistently implemented.

Yeah, unbelievable that the next thing to resetting your device can just happen with a slip of the finger. Anyway, I have prevented total damage by quickly pressing the hardware power off button after accidentally activating restore.

I think this has been fixed in (if not before..?) The restore button now leads to dialog page to confirms the action.

Also, I can only see the latest backup, not any older ones, so I don't think you can remove old backups via the GUI currently. I suspect this is a side effect of enabling the backup to NextCloud (OwnCloud works, too).
