    Hi,

    I've recently had my backup, but the file is too big and i don't want to download to local. Just wondering in the future if there's problem and i can't access the WP Dashboard (where i can simply click on the restore button to restore), where can i find my backups? (If i don't store it to the cloud).

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Best,

    Ivy

    Hi Ivy,

    If you don't store to the cloud, then by default your backups are in wp-content/updraft.

    However, not storing to the cloud is not recommended at all. It means that your backups are in the same location as your site. So, if your site is lost (e.g. your hosting company gets hacked, or goes bankrupt, or makes a mistake and deletes your site), then you lose everything and have no backups. Dropbox is free, so there's no reason to risk it.

    Best wishes,
    David

    Hi David,

    Thank you so much for your reply. I just realized "by default your backups are in wp-content/updraft” is actually in the setting, pardon me for asking stupid question…

    Yes i understand. So if i’ve already done the backup, all i need is to upload the file from /updraft to i.e. Dropbox? If next time i select "backing up to the cloud” before i start backing up, will it making backing up files at both /updraft and Dropbox at the same time? Just wondering if the back up will take too long if i select to back up to the cloud.

    Appreciate your help!

    Hi Ivy,

    UpdraftPlus can automatically send the backup to Dropbox - that's in the settings too. After sending it, UpdraftPlus will delete the local copy (unless you change the option in the 'expert' section).
