You are assuming that the file named "backup.sql" contains a backup of the
database named "backup". There is no grounds in the mail that support that
assumption; I would even say that 'backup.sql' is a rather generic name for
a file containing a backup. Such naming is not uncommon for a one-shot
backup; or it might be used as a placeholder in an explanation.
