Step 2 - Your next step is to download the backup file copy and store it on your computer at the office. To do this, you will need to open an FTP program - this will give you access to the files on the server - look for the backup file and download it to your computer.

Step 3 - When done, you can and should delete the backup file that is on the server to make more room for your website.
