Where do these Backups come from (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    This may sound really stupid (and it probably is).

    Some how, my WP install generates a daily backup which is stord in folder called something like: 11eb10be78-backups
    The path to this folder is RootDomain > wp-content > 11eb10be78-backups

    I have no clue which of my plugins is generating this.
    I use two "suspicious" plugins:
    Better wp security
    Wp to dropbox (which makes a back up in my dropbox)

    In Better WP Security I have switched off the backup option.

    Where do they keep coming from?

    thx

    You should check for malware on your site at sucuri.net and other such sites.
    Also refresh your cache in case you are using a cache plugin.

    I'm positive my sites are not infected.

    What else can I look at (I really feel very stupid now)
