    Hi Johny,

    Yes, there’s a paid OneDrive add-on available for $15; whether one considers that expensive depends upon how much reliable backups of your particular website are worth to you in your particular situation, and the added value that a proven solution like UpdraftPlus software + support provides towards that. If it’s not something that interests you at the price, that’s fine it itself. If people don’t buy stuff because they don’t like the prices, we have to react to that eventually.

    This isn’t really a review of the plugin being offered, though (the plugin description nowhere claims free OneDrive support, so, you’ve reviewed something that doesn’t exist). It’s more what I call a “punishment review” where someone re-deploys the review system to poke a stick at a plugin author who didn’t do as much free work for them as they desired.

    I appreciate to some extent that free everything is nice (have you given me free anything yet? 🙂 ), but it’s economically impossible (OneDrive support exists because we are economically able to fund its development and ongoing support). If everything was free (i.e. no funds to power development or support), that “everything” would be much (much) less than what’s free to everyone now. On the side of plugin authors, we appreciate positive feedback about aspects for improvement – but “punishment reviews”, not really.
