Using it to move sites
By , for WP 3.9.1

Lovely plugin! I download the backups to a dropbox and use them when I move sites from temporary domains to the domains of my customers, once the sites have been created. Works great, thank you so much!

Fantastic
By , for WP 2.6.2

I've only just remembered I'd installed this fantastic plugin and it's been doing backups on a daily basis for 2 months without my knowledge. I've just tweaked it to do one weekly backup of everything and only store 3 on the server. For me this is piece of mind in case something goes wrong and it's nothing short of a godsend for those of us with technical WP installations like gabfire themes etc.
thanks very much for this awesome plugin :)

ps: only just noticed that I'm using v2.62 and cannot understand why it hasn't been updated so am off to investigate...

The backup didn't work!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Well, I was told this plugin was great but it seems I was duped.

After installing the plugin I created a backup of my site and db. Lo and behold this week I needed to put that backup to the test. I was messing around with file permissions and crashed my site good. I couldn't fix the site so I tried to restore the site and db from the backup. Guess what? The backup doesn't work. Kept getting db errors when I uploaded the backed up db. The site files seem to all be there but the db backup is no good so my page and post content doesn't show up. Looks like you can't count on this plug-in to work when you need it. I went to the plugin site for help and their "help search engine" has no useful info. I'm really bummed that I can't fix the site. All the work I've done for weeks and weeks is GONE! I emailed them for help since they say they will help with any problems. I'll change my review if I get some good help from them.

Ooops! forgot to rate It! I rate this at zero stars for now!

I Like It!

Works easily, giving me the files to download for local testing, and confidence that I can restore code to files for which I don't have FTP access.

Backups work great and the best part is you can have more than one automated backups.
Thank you for the great plug in :)

Thanks for the plugin. Saves great time and no need to worry for the backup after setting schedule.
