Exclude Image Thumbnails From UpdraftPlus Backups

Description

A small plugin to exclude WordPress generated image thumbnails from Updraft backups, saving space. The original, full-sized image is included in backups, so if a restoration from backup is needed, a plugin can be used to regenerate thumbnails using the original, full-size images.

Features:

  • Works for all image types and includes both native and custom image sizes added by themes and plugins.

Installation

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Ensure UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore is installed and activated
  2. Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

Reviews

Appears to work very well!

After installing a full backup went from nearly 600mb in Uploads down to 230mb – and the backup taking just under 20 minutes (nearly 60 minutes before) – so it does appear to work!

Thank you
