UNKNOWN FAILURE
By ,

The plugin has not worked for last month and online backup fails with "UNKNOWN FAILURE" error. I rather recommend UpdraftPlus where you can backup your files to whatever online drive you want (Dropbox, GDrive, ...).

plugin not working
By , for WP 3.9.1

making the backup is possible, but when I try to retrieve the backup it doesn't work... also tried to get some help on support forum from creators of the plugin, also by mail, but no answer.
Bad plugin, Bad support :///

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.

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.

Gone from bad to worse
By , for WP 3.6

Initially the back couldn't be unzipped and somehow this problem resolved itself on one of my sites and now when i click on the download button it redirects to the websites 404 page.

The problem isn't just on one site but i have this plugin on multiple site and now i am uninstalling from all of them and moving onto something better.

Didn't work for me

I set everything up, got an account tired different configurations and I kept getting a "The activity cannot proceed any further due to an unknown problem. Please visit the Help & Support section for information on where to find help." message.

And.. how am I supposed to ask for help if I don't know what the problem is? Nothing listed in the FAQ about this issue. Here is my log...

Looks great and I wish it worked for me, but it doesn't.
