..beware of the speed of your webhost with this kind of plugin !
Normally your webhost can offer you an everyday backup mysql for free!
But you'll have to do it mannualy..

Very fat, lots of ads, whines about site not working correctly.

They wanted me to give them a review as soon as I installed it. Ok.

This could be a great plugin, I don't know. As soon as I installed this plugin it was displaying a line telling me that javascript/jquery wasn't working correctly with a link telling me the problem was simple to solve...

Turns out they want me to shut down the site and spend 2 hours debugging the problem (they provide step by step instructions, so helpful!) Problem is theirs -- this site works fine without them. Client laughed when I asked if they wanted to pay for debugging 3rd party software that had just been installed....

Other issue is that the admin page is COVERED with ads for all kinds of stuff that I should be excited about, Right? Nah.

On deinstallation I saw the longest list of files I have ever seen in a plugin, seriously...

Thanks guys!

The best so far

Good plugin, a few core features come for free, extra dollars to be paid if you want more. The only one regularly updated, as for now.

possible plugin conflict
By , for WP 3.5.1

Caveat: I didn't build this site, so don't know if it's something else, but this would save settings, but none of the actual buttons would work. Neither 'test FTP setup' nor 'backup now', in particular. And the 'enable advanced settings' link just went to a hash tag in the URL, so it seems like some WP-Admin javascript is borked.

My other plugins:

ManageWP - Worker (not active)
Regenerate Thumbnails
Revision Control
TinyMCE Advanced
Widget Logic
wpcu3er (not active)

Good, but doesn't fully work correctly

The plugin will create backups. But, the plugin page lists them with the local timestamp whereas the actual backup files are created using UTC. So, you have to FTP to your server and manually download the backup files.
