Where to find the text content in a back-up?

Hi! There was a problem with the implementation of an external shortcode in Elementor and I lost some content (only text).

I can’t do a full back-up restoration as I would loose the work that I made yesterday. However, I do have a backup copy of the whole website where those lost texts are (somewhere). I have no idea in which folder to find it though. Any light out there?

In case it helps, the texts where inside the Elementor Toggle widget.

Thanks in advance :-)

Did you back up the database?  The content is kept in the database.

Are you able to look at page revisions and see if it is there, copy it out into notepad?

Page revisions! Why I didn’t think of that? Thanks a million, Susan. All fixed now :-)
