    if the site is very large, it takes time to create the database backup. And if the server execution time is set to low value, you get go to blank page.
    There may be chance your server max execution time is 30 second. Please check debug log file.
    You will need to ask your hosting services to increase the execution time and the plugin will work fine for large data.
    You can also try to increase execution time. Please make below changes – Add below line


    max_execution_time = 180 ;

    Can you please share your site admin details on so that we can check exact issue.
