Step 5: Create a backup. To do this select Backup > Mark System + Data + Boot.

Step 6: Move the backup of the LPX13D Preview into the backup folder in TWRP that you just made. Advanced > File Manager > sdcard > Find your N5 TWRP Backup LPX13D file > Click on it > Click Select on the bottom right > Move > sdcard > TWRP > BACKUP > click on the folder in there which should be a bunch of numbers and letters > Click Select again.
