Nice Backup Plugin

Have been using this plugin on several sites now for a while, and it has worked very well. One of the best free backup plugins I have found to date. Thanks for your efforts Backup Technology!!

works fine
By , for WP 3.8.1

The plugin works fine, scheduling is very good.
5 stars when the restore case will be handled better (e.g. with gui like "duplicator")

Not supported
By , for WP 3.8

Plugin is not supported. It is still offered as a freebie, but there has been a problem lately with being able to store backups on the server. They had this problem a couple of months ago and corrected it for WordPress users. I requested the same support on it this time, but have yet to hear back.

Curious what others are using for their backups.

Inconsistent
By , for WP 3.8

The plug-in works inconsistently, which is not a good feature for a back-up system.

Works well
By , for WP 3.7.1

Does an excellent job of backing up all files and the database - scheduling, archive size limitations & number of backups to keep locally options work well as does the activity log. Great job on this plugin.

Excellent backup plugin, easy to configure and run
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a very excellent backup plugin, easy to configure and get run. You can achieve this result in minutes, and the ability to save backup locally, or sending it through email, or save it to a, make it indispensable in every installation of wordpress

Loved it, until latest update
By , for WP 3.6

Loved this plugin. So handy to just set it and forget it. I check on the backups once a week just to make sure it's still doing its job, but when this latest update passed though it broke the functionality of the entire plugin. I will not sign up on your site to use this plugin, I don't care what kind of bs you're selling. If you want to sell your plugin, fine, but don't be a thorn in the side of your consumer-base just to get their contact information. I wash my hands of thee and wish you all the best.

Restore doesn't work
By , for WP 3.6.1

The worst thing about a back up system is that you only really test it when you have a major problem, then you really need to know it will work. The file I restored with yesterdays date turned out to be about a month old, I went back to find another and they've all been deleted!

It's not much use offering a service without support when you really need it, especially if the system is flawed.

Being told the typical response is several days and then seeing unanswered forum posts going back months leaves me with no confidence about the more advanced products on offer.

Great backup plugin and the online storage for backups is an amazing service for free.
