Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Multiple back-ups

  • Resolved Malae


    The plugin works fine and I am very happy with the documentation. I selected to retain 2 backups, expecting that at each new back-up the older one would be deleted and a new one added. On checking I found that I have 2 backups, but with the second made immediately after the first, per my check of file dates and times on Google Drive. Is this the way it always works, or can I retain an older backup? If not what is the point of making multiple back-ups?

    Hi Malae,

    That’s not what is meant to happen! I think we found and fixed the cause of this issue already. Please update to the development version:


    Hello David,

    Thanks for your fast response. I am impressed by your effective fix. I installed the development version and installed without any problem thanks to your clear instructions. I ran the back-up and now have two back-ups with different dates. The only issue was getting Google Drive to sync its folder with the new files. A most useful plug-in!

    You’re welcome!

    You may need to delete some of the prior backups manually – with an issue like this, things get out of sync.

    If you find UD useful, then please give us a good review –

    Many thanks,

    In fact, as mentioned earlier, the only issue was the time it took Google to sort out the synchronization of the new update and after waiting for it to sort itself out. After that, it showed exactly what I had expected, so am completely satisfied.

    I already posted a review a couple of weeks ago and have updated it.
