Default How to restore TWRP Backup?

I made a full backup via TWRP before I flash back to stock to send for warranty. Now that its back, I tried to restore via TWRP but nothing shown in the sdcard when I press restore in TWRP. I can see there is files via my PC as well as in android es file explorer.

What exactly I need to do to restore via TWRP?

This ENTIRE!!! TWRP folder has to go on the root of your external SD card or internal doesn't really matter at this point.

Or if you have a TRWP on your SD card just copy the "dated" folder in there and TWRP should be seeing it then.

Your tree structure should look like this.. TWRP... BACKUPS... "bunch" of numbers folder... then the dated folder.

Once you have done that go into custom recovery "TWRP" and go to back up and restore and navigate to the file and swipe to restore.

Hoping this helps

Ah thanks man, seems that my problem is the number had changed since I sent it for warranty, they change my internal board/chip so i just have to rename my old folder number to a new number.
