    I have a backup of my site to be downloaded each day

    On my WordPress CP it says backups have been done:
    Next Scheduled
    Next backup scheduled for 2012-10-26 at 03:00:00

    BUT WHEN I LOG INTO DROPBOX.COM
    I only see 1 backup of files listed there and it was from when I MANUALLY clicked to backup my site.

    What do you think the issue is?
    Thanks!

    Gday,

    You will only ever see one set of files in your Dropbox. This is because the plugin is smart enough to only update the files that have changed since your last update.

    If you checkout the history of the SQL dump files (located in 'wp-content/backups') in the Dropbox web interface. You will notice that they will have updated at the times listed above.

    If you want to store multiple backup versions of the same blog you can purchase the zip extension that will compress and date stamp each backup before uploading it to Dropbox.

    Cheers,
    Mikey
