    But how to connect to DropBox? What you mean: "Application Key" & "Application Secret"? And what should be the setting of option "Backup store mode"?

    To get the application Key and Secret, you need to register a dropbox app from your account. Once that is done, simply activate the dropbox option in the Cron config and add the key and secret parameters...

    Thank you for your help.
    Yes, I know about this. But when I tried to input the app name "XCloner", Dropbox told me: "This app name is already taken".

    See screenshot: http://www.imageup.ru/img215/1321446/create-app-dropbox.jpg.html

    If I use other app name, your plugin will ignore it. I tried do it whis name "XCloner1" already.

    May be I must to do something in the plagin settings?

    Seem to me understood my mistake. The plugin cann't work without setting up cron. But my hosting does not provide the ability to manage crontab. Sorry, it's very interesting plugin. Sorry to have spent time on me. I will search other solutions.
