    I am trying to revert my AT&T Lumia 1520 from Redstone back to the Release Ring, and after completing a back-up have successfully used the Windows Device Recovery Tool to reset my phone to Windows 8.

    However I chose "sign-in later" at the initial set up screen, and then downloaded Windows Insider from the Store. I selected the Release Preview Ring, which is now installing.

    My question is, how will I be able to restore my recent back-up without resetting the device back to Windows 8? Is this possible?

    Sure. Your phone, after your log in and identity double check, will inform you about a backup available.

    Didn't know that so he wouldn't have to hard reset all over again to get his backup?

    Backup means that: save for further recover in case of restore (or device change)
