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? Sep 14, 2016 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. Sep 14, 2016 at 20:52

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
