Snapshot on localhost has no pages / posts / wpml data


I wanted to work on my localhost for further development of my website.

I took a global backup of all tables and data.

When installing the backup I downloaded a recent wp 3.8 instal with only one plugin installed: snapshot.

I've upload the latest backup available on my live site, downloaded it and uploaded it through the snapshot / import function.

After the import, al pages / post and WPML data is not recognized.

What am I doing wrong here?
Please do not run another restore on my global site to check if everything is ok. I know it is because I had to restore because I had a problem with a function.

Is there a way to make a global backup so I can work locally and then restore everything later online?

Many thanks in advance,
