[Project-Open] How to restore back up file in Project-open

In ]po[ we wanted to do some experiments, so we installed it in new machine.
We have daily backups for the database for production server  , so i took the latest one and put it in the directory "backup" in newly installed PC.

When we tried to restore the database we could't see the file in Admin-> backup through webpage.

So I created fresh backup ,  it created a new file at the same location. Now i renamed the "old database" file as the "new database" file . Now, i restored it, and it worked fine.

It means that we cannot restore backup, if it is not in the same format as generated one from project-open.

Sounds like "Bug" but i need to confirm again before declaring this :-)
