By default, the most recent backup file in the backups directory will be used to restore the database. You can also manually restore a particular file with a few extra steps, which are highlighted with **.
For security purposes, you are not allowed to restore a backup onto a DB instance that already contains a database. Therefore, make sure to have an empty DB or to manually drop any existing databases from the instance before performing the "DB master restore" operational action. The time required to perform a restoration of the database will vary depending on its size.
After clicking on the "DB master restore" action, the Recent Events pane will highlight the progress of the operation. Once the DB is successfully restored, we should be able to verify that the new data from the restored file is being served. You might want to point the application to it and inspect the results in some pages, or manually connect to the instance and execute some SQL queries to verify that some data exists.
