Q. What are the files in the file manager that have filenames such as: XXXXXXX-75.WMTBACKUP

A. These are backups that are made for each person.  So each person has an id and the id is their backup so they can see their most recent backup.  This is only done if using the file manager within the client admin.  If using sFTP or other means to edit the file it does not track changes.

Q. I see in the system where you can create mobile pages by adding ~mobile to the end. what is the difference between the page being mobile responsive and creating a mobile page with ~mobile?

A. Responsive pages:
Page automatically adjusts according to a device’s screen size

Mobile pages:
It's essentially a copy of the original page, where the server does the work to deliver an optimized page that’s smaller and easier to navigate.

WMT backend is fully responsive. However it can be switched to mobile version by turning on mobile version under advanced features.

Mobile pages are fully editable via file manager

You can create a mobile version for any backend page by adding -mobile to the end of file name
