Default [Q] Recovery question

hey this a very stupid question but id appreciate it if someone helped me out. so ive made nandroid back ups of all the roms ive flashed till now, and ive kept them on my computer. my question is, what is the correct procedure to shift these nandroid back ups from my computer to my phone and restore them properly?
i use twrp 2.6.3.4

LG G2 D802 Black 32 GB International

With twrp, simple copy folder on pc to store.

then, copy back from pc to same folder on phone,
reboot to recovery and restore works fine

ok, how you copy it to PC first? (or nandroid do this automatically?)
i think, that nandroid backup to sd, and you copy it to pc...
just copy back, go get to recovery, press restore, and you will see your backup.

do you have recovery installed, like twrp or cwm ?

i copy whole folder, maybe it have md5, maybe not..

i have twrp installed.
i made the nandroid back up via recovery. after it was done i used root browser, went to sdcard/TWRP/BACKUPS/02f44b000ed16413/
then i just copied the back up inside the last folder to my computer via usb and then i deleted the back up on the phone. the path above is still intact.

just copy this folder back to phone, reboot phone into recovery (twrp), and hit restore button.
