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

Simple and mostly effective, but poor support
By , for WP 3.8

I've been hopping from one backup solution to another, but couldn't get one that did simply what I need: scheduled local backups of my database and file system. Online backup does the job with very simple configuration. I have verified my first backup job, and everything is safely stored. Thanks for the great free plugin!

Problem, though: since September 2013, the scheduled backups stopped working, and the plugin author isn't helping out on the support forums. I found a workaround (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/scheduled-backups-not-working). This doesn't bode well for the future reliability of the plugin as WP continues to get updated.

It does what it says, but not what I thought it would do
By , for WP 3.5.1

I recently gave this plugin a one star review because I thought it would help me restore my site, too. This plugin doesn't do that. This is one of those plugins that you have to spend some time with (20-60 minutes) to use properly, so if you are looking for something simple, I would not recommend this.

I should note that the developer was very friendly and helpful with my problem, but I have since moved on to an easier to use plugin that does what I want.
