How to create a new website out of a backup?

I have the backup files from UpDraft of a website during a security incident and I want to analyze it to figure out which plugin caused this.

So I have all the zip files from the incident day: DB, Others, Plugins, Themes, Uploads.

I want to create a new WP installation with those files to replicate the incident in a development enviroment.

How can I do that with UpDraft?
I know that there’s the “migration” feature but I believe that will move the “current website” and not the version of the incident day…

Thank you in advance!
