    I am fully updated on all my plugins as of Aug. 30, 2017. I bought and installed the WordPress Backup plugin today. Paid the $30 without the coupon, didn’t see it in time to use it. Installed the Pro version. Took a manual backup. It failed to upload to everything but Google Drive, which I had checkmarked along with the cloud, WordPress (my program) and OneDrive. No upload to OneDrive, the backup made it to Google Drive into the marked folder there. I tried to download it, and it would not download. I can’t tell if it really backed up my site at all. I hate paying money for things I don’t get to receive, so I’d like to know how to download my backup and check to see if my whole site has indeed been backed up, before I pay for another year of this program or anything else to do with it. I need to know my site is actually being backed up, without errors.

    @karencole37, could you please provide me the error message you’ve received? So, I’ll be able to understand what’s the problem there?

    Once I reactivated only for Google Drive, I got a good downloaded copy of the backup. So maybe all is okay. I just need to be able now to check over the backup somehow. I downloaded the Google Drive cloud copy as instructed and installed SGBP Extractor, but I still have no idea what to do to ensure my backup is perfect and error-free. I am paying only $30 a year for this, but I used to pay another backup service $70 a year and got only errors and no real backup from them. So how can I check to be sure I’m getting a real, solid backup of my website and that it is working, each time? How can I upload the backup to somewhere to inspect and see if the backup will work?

    @karencole37, you can setup any temporary WordPress installation to restore and check it. But if you don’t know how, please share your archive with us and we’ll deploy it on one of our test environments and will let you know to check and make 100% sure if all right with your archive. You can share the backup directly from Google Drive with support@backup-guard.com As you’re done, please let me know!

    @karencole37, hasn’t heard backup from you. Where you able to validate your backup?

    P.S. If all right, could you please find a moment to re-consider your review regarding our product?

    Yes, I’ll give your product five stars. Where do I go to give them? But I need you to have a better refund policy, where you give refunds without making people jump through lots of hoops. Do you have that yet? Or any evidence of that?

    Meanwhile the backup service appears to be working. I just need to handle this with you tomorrow or so. Thanks again, this may be the backup service I was looking for for my ten-page not so complicated website.

    @karencole37, isn’t this your review https://wordpress.org/support/topic/interface-isnt-complete/? We’ll really appreciate if find a moment to re-consider it!

    P.S. We’re always open to refund. We just need to make sure there’s a problem originating from our product. This is the main prerequisite for refund approvals.
