Good potential but failed
By , for WP 3.9

Despite a strong desire for this plugin to work....it does not complete successfully on an automatic schedule.

The plugin will work if run manually. The paid upgrade (to upload to Google Drive) will work if run manually.

It will not work as an automatic schedule and becomes "stuck" before successfully completing the backup. I suspect this may be a conflict with litespeed web server code.

Support by the company and programmers has, I regretfully report, been abysmal despite being fed extensive amount of troubleshooting steps taken, background information and weeks of trial and error to resolve on my behalf. The paid support resulted in a standardized suggestion and then all but abandoned me.

If this program works for you then consider yourself lucky. Many others are not having success.

Works As Advertised
By , for WP 3.8.3

No fuss setup and great feeling of security. Automates what has always been a sporadic pain for me. Highly recommended, especially for novice WordPress users like me.

works great

I use it on several sites. Always reliable and easy to use. The automated feature ensures that back up's are regular and my clients don't have to lift a finger.

Works as advertised, easy to get started
By , for WP 3.8.2

Right "out of the box," it schedules a daily backup of your database and a weekly backup of your database and your files. I tweaked a few parameters but there was almost no need to so; I would have been fine leaving it at the default settings.

A few years ago when I accidently erased the contents of my database, this would have been very helpful. Now I have no reason to worry about data loss, especially since I can mail these backups to my Gmail account and then download the files to my Google Drive. If you want even more security, you can pay for an extension that will push those files to a remote drive (Google, DropBox, FTP, etc.), although I have chosen not to do so at this stage.

I appreciate that I can schedule automatic back-ups and perform them at will. The plug-in is quite easy to use and understandable even for those new to WordPress.

Ridiculously easy to use, incredible peace of mind
By , for WP 3.8.2

Basically one of my favorite plugins of all time. A nasty mix-up where I forgot to backup both my database AND my files prompted me to look for a simple way to do both at the same time. Thus I found this plugin. I now use it everywhere. It's amazing. Thank you so much!!!
