I read to create backups of your data we can use snapshot API, but how does the backup restore works? Is there any API or we have do manually.

For Typesense Cloud, we manage this for you.

But for Typesense self-hosted, you'd just need to start a Typesense server with data-dir pointed to the snapshot generated by the snapshot API.
