Great until...
By , for WP 3.6

I had been using this plugin with no problems until...

My webhost just notified me that this plugin has been backing up its own backups in 'Complete' mode, growing exponentially larger every time it backs up. It seriously doesn't exclude all the directories it makes for backups? I checked and it only had one excluded. Not user-friendly, entry into the exclude window is tiny.

Very uncool.

Nice plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Super helpful plugin, but the 2.2.1 drops an open_basedir restriction, not to the fault of the server, preventing the successful backup of my database + files.

Upon downgrading, it works, but it the automatic back-up feature is broken - my "hourly" back-up schedule just doesn't run. Instead my stuff is backed up at apparently arbitrary intervals.

And, as far as I can discern, there's not much support in addressing these issues.
