    Is your plugin compatible with any authentication schemes?

    I want to restrict access to the wp-clone directory. Your naming scheme is very programmatic and anyone who has used it could guess the url, as pointed out in another issue.

    2.1.3 will change the "predictable" naming structure ,at least to some extent,but until then,just disable the plugin when you're not using it (and this really shouldn't be used as a backup plugin),that places a .htaccess file in the backup directory to prevent all external access to the files.

    Understood, but manual steps can be forgotten. So adding a little bit of security would help mitigate those times. I'm also using IIS, so the .htaccess file doesn't solve anything. One more reason why I should convince my boss to switch to Apache.

    Anyways, thanks for the reply. I'm looking forward to the next release.
