Poor
By ,

I don't trust any of backup plugin and this is one of them.
Is so strange free version. I have backup with clock in future and files arhive is not existing. My server have ok date and time.
The best way is a simply script to copy entire wordpress on remote location and a simply database backup plugin. That all.
And for migrating 30$? :))))).
With my copy from up and with a simpliest plugin like Update URLs, I migrate my site only in 10 minutes.

Does not work - waste of time
By , for WP 3.9.1

complete waste of time - scheduled several back ups and retried many times. Could not complete a back up - could not restore a back up from another source. All they want is for you to pay them ...

Yeeaah and pay 60 USD when you´re in trouble
By , for WP 3.9.1

Probably totally ok if you want to pay 60 USD for Updraft Plus when you get problems and really need the backup to work.
It is cheaper to export your SQL-file from PHP-admin and use it for free.

I installed this plugin because of its cloning/migration feature. Unfortunately this feature costs $30!

Bad Support and License agreement

I have been using updraft plus plugin for a while. So far so good until my website is down and have to reinstall it to realise that the license is only by per wordpress installation.

So if my website is down, and i have to reinstall the plugin into wordpress, i have to use another license (I bought 10) for the same website. This is stupid and silly.

If i am a pro developer that knows my way around wordpress like a champ, i wouldnt need this plugin anyway. I would be able to do my own backup and restore without any problems but I am not, that is why i bought this plugin. Great plugin but stupid support team.

Constant DB corruption
By , for WP 3.9

No good.

This plugin worked until I tried to deactivate it. It corrupted the DB for my website when I tried 'deactivating' it through WordPress 'Plugins' and I completely lost access to my WP dashboard.

After re-installing the DB, the second time around it corrupted the DB when I tried 'updating' the plugin and I again have lost access to my WP dashboard. I have deleted this plugin now as I cannot have a website that keeps going down with every upgrade of this plugin.

Ut oh!! Disaster!!! Hope it can be reversed???
By , for WP 3.9.1

I used it today to back up site. Instead of doing what it's supposed to do - first time using latest version, it re installed the old end of April version.

Big mess!! I can probably re do my website but what a time waster - and what happens next time if I try to use it?

I don't trust this new version. Has problems.
It went from a 5 to a 0 to me.

I'll update if I can reach someone at the plug in office and see if they can get my site back.
The version I had til 3:30 today.

Poor plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I installed the plugin, wanting to make a quick backup before making changes to my site.

I ran a manual plugin and no zip file was emailed.

It came back with an error and said to look at the log file. If you are a non-techy like me, have you ever tried to look at a log file for an error?

It's a waste of time, a poor plugin that should just "work out the box" but doesn't.

I won't be using this again and I wouldn't recommend you ever use it.
