    3. Type a name (i.e. My Website Backup) to the directory.
    4. Double click the new directory in the lower-left window to navigate to it.
    5. In the lower-right window, click any folder and then hit Ctrl-a on your keyboard to highlight all of the files and folders.

      public_html: If you want to download your website files, select the public_html directory
      Email: If you want to download your email, select the mail directory.
      Databases: Your databases are not stored in the same directory as your hosting account. You will need to download a backup of your databases separately.
    6. Right click on any of the highlighted files / folders and click "Download". This will download all of your files / folders to the "My Website Backup" folder that we created above.
