I just installed your great plugin today and it works great, except for one thing:
the plugin needs a file permission of 777 on the backups folder in order to work??!!
This is what happened:
After the installation (through plugin page within wordpress, as well as through ftp upload) it asked me to create the "backups"-folder.
So I created the folder with my ftp programm (filezilla) and reloaded the wpb2d settings page and it asked me to grant wordpress write access to the backups folder.
Error message: WordPress does not have write access to '/www/htdocs/xxxxxxx/xxxxxxx.xxx/wordpress/wp-content/backups'. Please grant it write privileges before using this plugin.
So I've tried various combinations from 755 to 775, but only 777 got the plugin to work... (It works like a charm so)
Is this great plugin supposed to work like this?
If so, isn't this a security issue?

So first off all I assume, that something went wrong with my installation or anything else with my hosting solution or I'm missing out on some additional information.
So any help is highly appreciated.
