    [FEHLER] Dropbox-API: Error: File “/tmp/.backwpup_045101757/backwpup_2_2011-10-22_14-12-06.tar.gz” is to big max. 150 MB.

    I need help with the backup to dropbox because it evertime tell me that the file is too big to work.
    Is there a way to make split archives or will any different settings help for that problem.

    I just noticed this error in my logs too. It would be great if BackWPup would split big archives into sections that are small enough to upload to Dropbox and include a shell script (or something) to recombine them for restoration.

    I future it will made a ‘sync’ with dropbox (file by file backup with no archive)

    When you say “in the future” do you have any idea when that “might” be. My blog is over 200mb and I have not had a sucsessfull upload in a good while when the zip file is that size.

    I would love it if each file was synced individually to SugarSync.

    OK, so I lied… Just checked the backup size and its not 200mb, its 374.88MB 🙂

    I have a lot of images in my posts on

    yes the plugin is at the moment totally useless. The problem is known sooo long i will not take a look to a usable plugin for that.


    Any updates on this topic?

    there will never be a update the plugin is crap nothing more then [expletive deleted – that wasn’t really necessary]

    Hi Daniel,

    First off thanks for making a brilliant plugin available 🙂

    I’ve looked at the link you provided above and noticed it says:
    “/files_put has a maximum file size limit of 150 MB and does not support uploads with chunked encoding. To upload larger files, use /chunked_upload instead.”

    Have you already looked at using chunked_upload instead of files_put or is that not really an option?

    It alredy in Version 2.1.15

    Ah, excellent… so does the 150 MB limit not apply any longer?

    Is there a limit today?
