Need auto backup function

I think it need an auto backup function even for this free version. I feel like any backup plugin free or premium this function is essential.

Other than above the plugin work smoothly and easy to integrate to Google Drive. Most noticeable is the speed of backing up the website sending it on remote storage also the restore is fast too.

piece of shit

i bought the premium of this.
use something like managewp or something else.
look at the other ratings
uzair21 rated twice 5 stars
and user name itthebest seems shady at 5 stars

this truly is a garbage plugin

A willing, yet lacking backup plugin

In theory, this could be the n. 1 wp backup plugin, with plenty of features that other services offer only on payment: backup scheduling, cloud and webdav upload etc.
When put to the test, it is nevetheless hard to setup, has a cluttered interface and (even worse) sometimes just does not work. Hope the developer will keep on working at this plugin — with some improvements it could really become one of the best in its category.

A 'Gift' For Joining MyThemeShop…

Someone’s blog gushed about how great the themes and plug-ins are here instead of Theme Forest, so I had to check it out. At the MyThemeShop, they told me they would give me some themes if I joined for free. Ok, sounds good. Got some themes and plug-ins. THIS IS the first one I downloaded and installed. Here’s what happened next:

Error: Your PHP installation does not have the bz2 extension which is required for this plugin to function correctly.

Fabulous first impression – if you want to run this you’ll have to screw around trying to convince your provider to add this extension. No Thanks. I’ll try some sites on the same provider they use and see what happens.

Poor Plugin

the plugin is not scalable. I tried this on multiple websites hosting files with few hundred mb but it just get stuck half way.. not really a functional one when compared with other ones ive tried. You guys need to spend more time on the plugin and not the plugin selling landing page!


From description it looks like all these features are free but they are not. Only the manual backup is free.
