SOLVED Oh oh, don't know the Backup ID

Happy new year!
So, I'm migrating to a new server, and am at the Restore stage but have hit a roadblock... I don't have any record of the Backup ID. I have all the other details of the backups, just not this one, but the Restore dialogue is asking for it.
I'm using Scaleway, if that helps.
How in the world do I figure this out?

@scooke OK, I did some more reading, and may have figured out the solution by reading the entirety of https://docs.cloudron.io/backups/#migrate-apps-from-one-cloudron-to-another.
For Scaleway, I needed to enter the main folder backup name which has the backup date in it, like this 2021-01-01-008365-212 followed by a slash /, and then the zipped backup in that folder, but removing the .tar.gz suffix. The whole thing looks like this:
I entered that, and the Restore commenced. Phew.
Thank you Cloudron team for making something that could have been esoteric and impossible to guess (a Backup ID auto-generated by an unrelated process) actually guessable by using existing info (the folder structure of the chosen Backup destination, in this case Scaleway).

Maybe what I wrote a couple days ago could help you --> https://forum.cloudron.io/post/22472
I will probably have to update https://docs.cloudron.io/backups/#restore-cloudron with more information like @subven has written since it seems this is not very clear.
