Mis-pressing the Restore function (under System Settings > Backup), instead of the Delete function, could lead to undesired loss of data. Adding an extra 5 seconds delay (identical to the delay that leads before deleting anything in SailfishOS) would be nice(r).

Would be a nice addition.

Backup UI redesign is coming (can't provide ETA yet), it has a bit different way to initiate the process so it will be much harder to restore occasionally.

Any news on this subject? I had to rip out my battery to prevent dataloss by accidentally pressing restore...

@XiliX redesign is started already, so it will be safer soon.
