[Resolved] [Plugin: WordPress Backup to Dropbox] Error message: "The backup is having trouble uploading fi

  • Hi there,
    The backup seemed to work fine and lots of files appear in my dropbox, however it doesn’t seem to have finished and the history page brings up the following error:

    “Exception – The backup is having trouble uploading files to Dropbox, it has failed 10 times and is aborting the backup.”

    I’ve done it 3 times now and it stops at the same error. You help would be much appreciated!
    Thanks

    It looks like the spaces in the image file names are causing issues with Dropbox. They should be supported. I will fix the issue ASAP.

    Thank you for taking the time to post your issue. 🙂
