      Description

      Hi Sam, while using the backup/restore UI here, I've found these things that should be fixed/improved. They are unrelared but as far as they are tiny, I put them here:

      1) Logged as admin, any time I click on the "backup" link. I get the initial page with the restore settings. And, using Safari, I clearly see how the "Include user files" is disabled (by javascript) immediately after initial page rendering. So it causes user files to not being included in backups ever. Not sure if it's one Safari problem or happens with all them.

      2) One improvement: When restoring one course, the 3-forms page is showed, with these options:

      • Restore into "this" course
      • Restore as a "new" course
      • Restore into an "existing" course

      I'd do this:

      a) change the order to be "new", "this", "existing" (or "this", "existing", "new"). The "logical" point is to have "existing" and "this" together. Not really important.
      b) More important, in the "existing" option, skip showing the "this" course. It sounds silly but I've ended deleting my test course 2 times by mistake when I wanted to restore it into another course. If somebody wants to restore into "this" he should use that option, and not the "existing" one. I think I'd also keep the "SITE" course (frontpage) out from the list. Overwriting it is really dangerous.

      Ciao
