Kobo Database Restore

I am sorry if this question is already answered somewhere, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere that is clear. I am using Davidfor's excellent Kobo Utilities, and have set it up to back up my database daily, and have configured a file location to do so.

Well, the day for me needing that backup has come! Calibre is reporting that my database is corrupt. So, I want to restore the backup made ten days ago, which I have neatly zipped up for me thanks to this utility.

But HOW, exactly, do I restore the database? Do I just overwrite, or replace, the existing files on my Kobo reader (I have a KA1 for reference, though I suppose that probably doesn't matter) and then go from there?

Just to be clear, there is lots of discussion on here about backing up and restoring across different firmware versions or even different Kobo models. That's not what I'm talking about. This is restoring to the same model and firmware version as the backed up version. (At least I don't think a firmware update came through since then.)
