1. A method comprising:
at a device including a display, an input device, a processor, and a non-transitory memory storing instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause:
displaying, on the display, a backup interface, including concurrently displaying:
a display area for presenting at least a first visual representation of an earlier version of a user interface window and a visual representation of a current view of the user interface window; and
a timeline associated with a first time scale, where the timeline represents a plurality of visual representations of earlier versions of the user interface window, wherein the timeline includes:
a first portion of the plurality of visual representations of earlier versions of the user interface window that is displayed with a condensed appearance in which a respective amount of time is represented by a first length, wherein the first portion includes a first tick mark of a first size, and wherein the first tick mark, when selected, is a second size that is larger than the first size while maintaining the first time scale for the timeline; and
a second portion of the plurality of visual representations of earlier versions of the user interface window that is displayed with an expanded appearance in which the respective amount of time is represented by a second length greater than the first length, wherein the second portion includes a second tick mark of the second size; and
while concurrently displaying the display area and the timeline, detecting a user input at a location on the timeline corresponding to the first portion of the timeline; and
in response to detecting the user input at the location on the timeline corresponding to the first portion of the timeline, displaying an animation of the first portion of the timeline spatially expanding to the expanded appearance and the second portion of the timeline spatially shrinking to the condensed appearance while maintaining the first time scale for the timeline.
