Hmm, Works great lol. Some suggestions though
By , for WP 3.6.1

So, I came here to complain how this plugin did not work, how it was disappointing me because it used to work and how I ran off and grabbed BackUpWordPress and it worked. That is until I DID install BUWP and it told me it was backing up my 1GB database/files collection.

Needless to say I was completely dumbfounded as to the size and went to investigate. Come to find out that when you start a compression of the site and cancel it, BackWpUp does not delete the temp file lol. Filled my hard drive with temp files till it could not back up any more. After some housekeeping and general maintenance everything is working the way it should.

I had three recommendations. First, instead of sitting at "Compression method is ZipArchive" it REALLY should say "Compressing files, please be patient this may take a while" so those of us who think its just sitting there broken would be able to understand this is how it works.

Second off, give us a database size of which we will be compressing. This would of saved me LOADS of time in figuring out my issue.

Finally, mention that ZIP is MUCH slower then say TarGZip. It sat for 500 seconds with zip and was (from what I can guess with the size of the temp files) about half way done and with GZip it took 55 seconds flat to complete

EDIT: After talking with the dev's I was thrilled at their help. Revised to 5 stars!!!
