It works on Free Hosts Accounts but needs some twicking
By , for WP 4.4.2

Good multi site backup for Free Host Accounts (Hostinger, 000webhost, etc).

But it did not work fully for cloning/migrate the site. The sql backup seems to be incomplete. I needed to do a full export on phpMyAdmin to be able to clone my multisite from Hostinger to openshift. (If developer wants to know the error I am willing to give him feedback)

Needs an option to turn off scheduler or to have only on demand backups. For a blog site this maybe not needed as comments are created continuously, but for a static site there is no need to have schedule backups, since there are not any changes besides occasionally plugins updates and sporadic page changes.

At last! separate site backup for multisite
By , for WP 4.5.1

This is great. Now if I have a problem on one site I can restore just that one site. I backs up the upload site folder and does a db backup of just that site number. I set it to email me the backup zip and I then autoforward that to dropbox (to resolve the issues where a failure happened in emailing to dropbox that I didn't see)

Great

Errors Received On Network Activation
By , for WP 4.3

Installed under WP 4.3 Multisite installation and attempted Network Activation. Received an error message that said 261 characters of unexpected output were received and suggested deactivating and removing if syndication errors occurred. Couldn't find network instructions for usage. Deactivated and removed.

My go to backup plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

Running over 20 wordpress sites this is my go to backup plugin. Set the backups to save via ftp to folder outside public_html and can let it do its thing.

Much appreciated!

Only issue might be if some users have directory browsing active and save their backups to an accessible folder, the backup zips can be easily downloaded and contain wp-config so anyone could basically hijack your entire server and database ;) But not a problem if you're careful.

Works great
By , for WP 4.0

I was looking for a free WordPress automatic backup solution and this plugin works great. I will be using this plugin for all of my WordPress websites. I highly recommended it.

Great tool for Multisites!
By , for WP 3.9

I used to run BackUpWordPress but had to change as it was creating a huge mess with Multisites and found this one that does the job much better.

There are still some basic options missing IMO and posted a support ticket about that but it still deserves 5 stars.

highly recommended

SedLex deserves high praise for coding great plugins and responding to requests

Great plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

A fantastic plugin, and exceptionally supported.
SedLex did a great job on the development, and when I encountered a problem was extremely helpful in getting it worked out.

Saved My Skin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I didn't understand exactly how the plugin worked and could not make it work for a day or two, but author bent over backwards to assist me. As soon as I realized I needed to override my existing database with the unzipped backup (obvious, isn't it?) it worked as promised. This plugin saved me from a month's hard work! Thank you SedLex.

Not playing nice with my theme at all
By , for WP 3.4.2

For some reason I cannot work out, this plug-in is not playing nice with the latest version of WP and my pro theme I'm using: Publisher. It is making customer log-ins impossible.
