I came here seeking a solution as I have had this same occurrence on one of my sites. The Database backup setting is not even turned on and I am getting slammed with emails.
Hello PTaubman, I turned off the database backup function, which stopped the backup being made every minute. I have always received two copies of the email report, and this is continuing. I only discovered the problem when I got an automatic warning that my website had exceeded its size limit. My website is hosted on a server owned by my son. So he went into the back-end and discovered these constant back-ups. He also has no answer as to why this fault has occurred.
I was waiting to see if someone had an answer, but the answer may be to disable the plugin and re-install a fresh copy.
Any thoughts on that approach?
Nope, reinstall is not going to fix it.

I’m having the SAME problems. I think it started around the end of Oct. or the beginning of Nov.
I just went into my settings & most of the sites don’t even have it turned on & it’s giving me backups PLUS duplicates.
This is NUTS.
Has the plugin been hacked????
And why isn’t the developer responding?

Same Problem here.
Turning off the “scheduled backups” does not stop the backups.
Please find a solution for this 🙂
still have the issue…
Is there a database entry that can/should be deleleted (where the old backup schedule data is held?)
