Differentiate Restore space / Restore site


Is it possible to have 2 menus to restore site and spaces, or at least 2 sectiosn in the backup / restore menu ?

A confluence administrator of my company didn't check the zip file send by another confluence team (which saved site instead of space).

These 2 human errors leads to delete our confluence site... and we had to restore a database backup after this mistake :-(

After that, we reinforced validation procedures to restore spaces, but it would be great if confluence could secure this very sensitive restore site operation.

Moreover, i tried to backup/restore site with version 7.13.7.

In the UI, we select zipfile, then clic on "Upload and Import", hop the process is beginning.

There is no warning  that you're going to delete your actual confluence site.

A least a warning and a checkbox should be mandatory when you try to restore a site backup.
