Set up and forget, super easy backups
By , for WP 3.8

With loads of options for backing up to various cloud services or other places, there will be an option for anyone. Once it's all up and running (which takes just a few minutes) you can forget about it! I haven't had to restore any files, so I can't say 100% that it works, but I trust it.

It works simply

It plays nicely with Dropbox, S3 and others I don't need
The darned thing just works

Wonderful product, excellent customer service
By , for WP 3.8

Initially, UpdraftPlus v. 1.8.2 did not work for my WordPress installation (v. 3.8, deployed on a standard GoDaddy account) and I posted to the support forum. By the end of the day, a new version, 1.8.5, had been released and it worked like a charm, and, bonus, the plugin author was so attentive and helpful that I learned a bit about what goes on under the hood e.g. the PHP database API and logging. The author has produced a high quality product with awesome support. UpdraftPlus is a great product. I highly recommend it.

Regarding backup targets, first, I used Google Drive to store the backups but became nonplussed by its seemingly unnecessary complexity and inelegant, inefficient, clumsy, and patched together UI. Next, I tried DropBox and, voilĂ , it worked with just a few clicks: simple and beautiful.

Thank you, @David, for all that you do!

Easy and just works

I have this set on all my sites and client sites. It just makes it easy to backup your site, without any hassles, love the fact it just puts it into dropbox for me.

highly recommended

Great Backup
By , for WP 3.8

Updraft works flawlessly. I'm on a satellite internet connection so the ability to back up to my Google Drive saves me a lot of bandwidth.

Wish list would include the ability to backup to Ubuntu One.

A Lifesaver
By , for WP 3.8

We moved to RackSpace hosting -- and found out after the fact that our old ways of backing up our sites wouldn't work. Until we found UpdraftPlus, the only answer was to have custom programming done to allow the sites to be backed up to RackSpace Cloud Files.

We were thrilled to find such a great plugin that made it so easy!
