    Since some time, not sure how long, I can not see the folders at all when going to settings. The Toggle link is there but no folders. Firefox v. 13 Safari 5.1.7

    Get back to me.

    Actually, as I look in my Dropbox folder, it has never successfully created a backup. Ok, off to look for another backup plugin.

    Also when i looked it has not taken a full backop only 80MB of my total 1000MB is backed up. No error message either.

    I seems to be that this plugin does not work that well with later versions of wordpress.

    I am having the same problem as svantelindback in his most recent post. Will in the dashboard of my word press site and scheduling a backup using the plugin "WordPress backup to dropbox" there is no file to choose. The "Toggle All" link is there but nothing else. I scheduled a backup but it appears that it did not take place as there was no files found in the backup folder. Can you help?

    Addendum to the post above:

    When I use the feature in the plugin "Backup Now" the backup works. I just did not have a choice as to what files to backup, which is what I want.

    I have fixed an issue in the file exclude widget 1.1.

    Does it fix your problem?

    Hello!

    I am unable to see any of the folders in plug-in Backup to Dropbox on this site http://jimmillayphotography.com/

    Plus the backup has been unable to complete over the past 24 hours.

    I've checked the image sizes and while he has lots of images on the site, they are all less than 100KB.

    Is it possible that this client's theme is creating the problem? (Photocrati?)

    Thank you for any advice and/or assistance you can provide.

    Julie

    I have made some performance changes in version 1.5 that should fix the issue.

    Please let me know how you go. If the issue still persists can you please create a new thread.

    Cheers,

    I am experiencing the same problem on one of my sites, WordPress 3.4.2, plugin 1.5.4. I have a really huge folder to exclude (2GBs or so) but I can not see the folders tree to exclude it. Any possibility to add this manually?

    Your huge file will probably be causing the indexer to timeout attempting to see if anything within it is excluded.

    If your savvy with the database you can add a row to the wp_wpb2d_excluded_files table setting file field to the full path of the directory without a trailing slash and the isdir field to 1.

    Ill add a task to my list to make it bail out of large directories like that in a smart way.

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    I have WP 3.5.1 and plugin version 1.5.4. I don't have a large folder under my site's root. The exclude dialog shows "Loading..." with the animated ellipses for a few seconds and then it disappears after the third ellipsis fades. The Exclude buttons and the frame around the animation remain.

    I'd appreciate any assistance you can provide.

    Best regards,

    -Luis
