How to uninstall mods using easy mod

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

I have an idea it has an uninstall option now.

EasyMOD keeps a backup of the files it's going to change before it edits them.

Look in the admin/mods/the-mod-name folder for /backups.

All the files are in there. Just remove the .txt suffix and re-upload them.

Oh i see..
there is an option in easy mod that says "restore backups"-so is this the same as manually doing it by going to the admin/mods/mod-name folder and renaming the files and uploading it?

and one more thing-
lets say v install a mod named "A":-Before installing easymod makes the backup files and then installs it.
and now v install a mod named "B":-Once again before installing it,easymod makes the backup files and then installs it.

but wat if some of the files edited when installing mod "B" was the same file edited when installing mod "A" ?...
and then when v want to uninstall mod "A"-
wont restoring backups cause mod B" to fail cuz when v r restoring the backups v r restoring the file which were there before mod "A" & mod "B" was there and thus there won't be any of the lines altered when installing mod "B" and so won't the mod "B" stop working??

Awaiting your reply,
Thank you for your time.

Yes the backups only have the files before the MOD was put on so if you wanted to uninstall A you would lose the edits to those files for B as well.

I assume so. I've never used it.
