Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Different Dropbox Folder name

  • Resolved Benmjt


    I’ve just installed Updraft on a new site and selected Dropbox backups, but the backups are saving to a different folder to my other sites. The new one is called ‘’ rather than the ‘UpdraftPLus’. Is there any way to merge these back together?

    To comply with updates to Dropbox, UpdraftPlus was updated to use a newer authentication method.
    Unfortunately, this requires UpdraftPlus to use a different Dropbox folder.

    There is not a way to switch back to the ‘UpdraftPlus’ app folder.

    You can switch the older sites to the new folder by de-authenticating and re-authenticating with Dropbox, and manually moving the old backup files to the new folder.
    However, there is currently a bug in downloading backups that have been moved in this manner, so I would recommend waiting for a while.

    Ok, that’s great. Thanks for the info.
