I can backup small folders without any problem. But I can't backup my uploads folder. It's about 480 mb. While trying to backup, it restarts several times due to inactivity, and then says it finishes and uploads to Amazon S3. But the file that it uploads is only about 15mb, so it's incomplete.
I'm using BackWPup 2.1.16, and wordpress 3.4.2. I'm also using W3 total cache, but I believe that you fixed that incompatibility issue in a previous version.
I thought perhaps it was a timeout issue with my server, so I contacted my web host, and they put a php.ini file in my root folder that has this:
memory_limit = 2048M
max_execution_time = 259200
max_input_time = 259200
upload_max_filesize = 1536M
post_max_size = 1536M
But I still can't backup my uploads folder. Here's the latest log file:

But, the file was only about 15 mb. I also tried saving it just as a tar, but that didn't help.
Do you have any ideas of what I can do to backup a large folder? I don't want to break it into smaller folders.
