4. Rename the file name of "TheIsland.ark" to anything (e.g TheIsland_old.ark).
5. Look for the save file that you want to restore. It should be in the same folder and has a naming
convention like "TheIsland_29.11.2016_08.05.27.ark". Text highlighted in red is the date in
DD.MM.YYYY format.
6. Rename that filename to "TheIsland.ark".
7. Restart your server.
NOTE: Look for the files with the map name if you are using a different map. E.g TheCenter.ark or
ScorchedEarth_P.ark
