WordPress Backup to Dropbox

    I was wondering if I could change the folder the backups get sent to?

    Also, I have only only run it one, but does it keep making new folders and instances or does it reach a certain number of write over the old version?

    The backup is stored in what Dropbox calls an 'App Folder'.

    This folder can be moved anywhere within your Dropbox and can be renamed to anything you wish. I call mine 'Blog Backups' and it sits in my Dropbox root.

    If you backup multiple blogs to one Dropbox you can set the 'Store in subfolder' option to something and the backup will be placed inside this folder. For me my blog is stored in 'Blog Backups/MikeyD/'.

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    Hi Mikey

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    So, if I rename the folder the WP plugin will know where to send future backups?

    That seams a bit clever.

    :D

    Yep! :-)

    Dropbox knows its an app folder ergo knows where to send the files.

    Cool

    So I will change the name, more it and see what happens when the weekly schedule comes around.

    Cheers once again.
