I am trying to flash my backup ROM – but when I click "Restore" in TWRP, it doesn't find my files! What am I doing wrong?

    Backups from TWRP are kept in the TWRP - BACKUPS folder, so I have to ask, is anything in the BACKUPS folder? – DukeSilversJazz Sep 14 '16 at 20:42
  • No. I MOVED the backups out of TWRP and ONTO my pc THEN MOVED the files BACK onto the TWRP sdcard. Thats when It wont recognize the rom. – Cool Nandroid 4 Life Sep 14 '16 at 20:52

    You're not going to make anyone answer quicker by yelling "NEEDZ HALP NAO!!!1!!1!11!". On the contrary, in fact: you may have deterred some good answers. – ArtOfCode Sep 14 '16 at 22:08

TWRP has a file manager by default in Advanced section... I'd suggest that you do a backup as is, and then use the file manager to move the Backup in exactly the same place that TWRP just made !

Make backup 1
Move backup 2 to backup 1
Restore backup 2
