    Thank you very much for creating this fine plugin! It is very useful to me and I appreciate your having contributed your work.

    I am having a problem with the backups, which have stopped working. If you could please advise. Please note that no changes were made to the configuration of your plugin, no plugin updates installed, no theme updates installed. Not even a new blog post.

    Everything was working fine until yesterday. The program now fails to save the backup file to google drive. I get the following email:


    Database backup has beeen created .
    Backup ZIP File is created
    A valid URL was not provided.

    Your back-up Details
    Backup Folder Name :mtcom-bak_1352322187.zip
    Backup Created on : 2012-11-07 21:03:46

    Thanks for your help.

    I re-installed the site from a backup (for reasons other than this) and the problem went away. That was four or five days ago, and the plugin has been working since the re-install. I'm watching the backups every day to see be sure they continue to work. I have yet to find a fully reliable, automatic backup system for my site. Other than this one glitch, though, this plugin is the best so far. -- Mike

    The plugin failed again, silently, a few days ago. It keeps sending emails saying everything is OK, but its not. I appreciate your efforts but, unfortunately, the plugin is not reliable.
