    You have left a .git file in one of the plugin directories that keeps breaking my backups on my host as they also use git. Can you please make sure that future updates do not include any .git files...

    I have the same problem. The host is WP Engine. They told me this.

    I looked through your account, and found that one of your plugins was utilizing .git folders which conflicts with our restore points. We do have off site backups which are different than these. In order for the restore points to function, these .git folders would need to be removed. Here's the location of these.


    I removed the files then backups worked. I'd love to keep using this plugin (5 stars!) but wouldn't want to have to remove .git files every time I update.

    But it'd still be nice to fix this for the other people who check their site's code into git.
