    When I run the backup, all the files are backed up as expected but the SQL files remain empty.

    The files are created but have no content other than the instruction to create the database if not already existing.

    ANy idea what is going wrong?

    Thanks.

    Do you still get the same problem in version 1.3?

    I am still not getting a SQL file in 1.3. I'm also not seeing any errors in my server log.

    What about the plugin log?

    It just says this:
    05:59:19 : Backup complete.
    05:59:19 : Creating SQL backup of your WordPress plugins.
    05:59:18 : Creating SQL backup of your WordPress core.
    05:59:15 : Backup started on Wednesday October 17, 2012.

    But, I don't see any SQL file in the backup folder either on the server or in my Dropbox account.

    That is pretty odd.

    I have pushed a fix to attempt to beter manage permissions. Can you please delete and re-install the plugin and see if it does the same thing?

    I did a delete and reinstall, but now the backup won't finish. Here's the log:

    I've tried running the backup and I repeatedly get it stuck at between 72% and 78%. I did notice after I deleted and reinstalled the plugin that it's putting the files in a new location on Dropbox, so it's backing up everything but still it should be able to finish after two days.
