Hi I'm having a problem with backing up to Dropbox - this did work with WordPress Backup To Dropbox but had to stop that since it was causing server timeout/CPU issues and my host (Hostgator) wasn't happy. Annoying since it was working fine.
So I've been trying to use BackWPup to do this but it succeeds but only uploads a few of the root files (166k worth as a zip) but no more.
Emailing the database works fine, as does Sugarsync database backup - it just seems the files or Dropbox are the issue. It's not a W3TotalCache issue because I disabled that and have tried a manual run several times and it failed complaining of '[ERROR] Job restarted, because inactivity!'
I am trying to backup quite a lot of files - 12000 of them - could that be the issue? I have the Dropbox space - more than enough - so that isn't the issue. Strange it only does the first 10 files then says it's done, though. It also shouldn't run out of server space, I have upto a 1Tb!
BTW 2 Factor Authentication blocks access to BackWPup and other similar plugins, if you didn't know already.
