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...

Backup it created didn't work as advertised when I tried to restore my site!!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Well, I was told this plugin was great but it really SUCKS.

After installing the plugin I created a backup of my site and db. Lo and behold a couple weeks later I needed to restore my site. Guess what? The backup for the database would NOT WORK! I Kept getting database errors when I tried to restore the db from the backup. I was able to restore my site files, but not the database. All page content and post content would not show up on my site. 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. The plugin's site is worthless when it comes to help.

Out of all the people giving this plugin a good rating, I wonder how many have actually tried restoring their site with one of the plugin's backups? This plugin SUCKS!! Beware, if you need to restore your site database you can't count on the backup to work.

I Like It!
By ,

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 :)

Great backup software
By , for WP 3.9.1

The software is easy to use and having the capability to do the full backup or database only is great. My website is small, but, all the same, when I update a plugin and it causes the site to go down, to be able to restore things pretty quick is fantastic to have.
Thanks very much!
