Support » Plugin: WordPress Backup to Dropbox » backup never finishing

  • my website http://www.balletnews.co.uk

    I installed and activated your plugin. I set the daily backups and it started today.
    Unfortunately it’s timing out all the time and seems to be on an almost continuous loop. Should I stop the backup or leave it running ?

    I understand the first back up will take ages and you have a time out feature which is presumably interfering with the process and that you are making some changes to the next version.

    What amm I supposed to do in the meantime ? Switch it off or leave it ? And will it every finish backing up the files if I leave it ?

    It’s very important that I have a back up for my business and this plugin came highly recommended

    Do you have any files on you blog over 10mb?

    HI Michael,

    Nope. The general storage quota limit seems to be the issue.

    Here is a bit of the log from overnight :
    • 01:21:56: A fatal error occured: The backup is having trouble uploading files to Dropbox, it has failed 10 times and is aborting the backup.
    • 01:21:56: Error uploading ‘/home/cheang/balletnews.co.uk/wp-content/gallery/white-lodge/thumbs/thumbs_white-lodge-open-day-11-june-2011-007.jpg’ to Dropbox: Error (507)Dropbox was unable to complete this action because of a storage quota limit.
    • 15:12:04: There has been no backup activity for a long time. Attempting to resume the backup.

    • 15:00:03: Backup started on Tuesday April 30, 2013

    What should I do ? Leave the backup attempting to finish (it gets to 99% complete and then gradually drops back to 1% complete) or just abort the whole thing ?

    I do need a backup but I need it pretty soon, thanks
