  • Have you tried looking for other causes ? I am sure the plugin author will respond to this anyway but thought I would chime in.

    This post is very alarming as it could mean anyone disabling the plugin will loose their site. So what I have dne is disabled /enabled the plugin, deleted it and re-installed it, disabled and enabled again. All on my test site and nothing happened to my site – it’s fine.

    I also checked my backup files. They contain an sql dump of the wordpress databases and the wp-content folder (which has themes, plugins etc).

    Not sure what has happened to you here but this plugin isn’t causing me any problems. Do you have access to server logs to see what was going on ?

    Sorry to hear about your situation Koperfield.

    I can think of one situation when this might happen, if you choose the backup folder to be your wordpress root folder. I do know of this problem and will fix the plugin to not allow the user to save backups in the root of wordpress.

    That’s a serious issue, and I would get that implemented asap.

    The issue has been fixed in version 2.2 of the plugin.

    The same situation Koperfild.

    All my files in wordpress are deleted at deactivate the pluggin.

    no index page 🙁

    this problem is a very, very dangerous.

    i’m trying to upload all my site again

    i don’t understand how this happens only deactivating pluggin.

    And…it also happens when you click “update” …. to update to 2.2

    Entire site…gone.

    I guess you’d need to work with it via FTP to save your site – it’s like a time bomb.
