Good for Dashboard Restores
By , for WP 4.2.2

WP Backup worked great when Restoring from withing the Dashboard.
But trying a new site restore was a bit complicated.

With the added Free addition of Backup to Dropbox is another Plus :)

Keep up the great work!

Looks like BackupWordPress before all the changes, but doesn't allow you to choose what time you want it to do it's scheduled backups. Add that and this thing is great.

simple, easy to use but has bugs
By , for WP 4.1

Clean design, does the basic job okay, but the bugs really got to me:

  • The defined constant for schedule time doens't seem to work, or the documentation is poorly written - either way, TERRIBLE user experience
  • Sometimes the Javascript edit button won't popup... I use Firefox 35 on OSX
  • The JS file appears to have a link to an old name of the plugin which I had to change manually in the code
  • All default schedule types get created when I create a new one.
  • I didn't receive email for only one of my backups, but there's no error message telling me why.
Simple and timesaving Backup AND Restore
By , for WP 4.0

This 'One-Click' Backup AND Restore Plugin works on all WP4 installations so far. Backup works very fast and compresses data.. Restore works the same fast way. In version 1.1 sometimes I encounter a bug, when I delete the 'Database Daily'-tab, but this is not a big problem. Simply switching back to backend.. The 'configure'-link sometimes is also buggy, but I don't need to change that, so it's ok for me.

Today comes an update to 1.2 but there is no information about the changes.. so after all it could be a 4 stars rating because of the buggs and no update information, but for me it works as good as I need it and I am saving time -> 5 stars

Wow, Easy, Fast, Effective Backups
By , for WP 3.8.1

Normal installation, customize the backup tabs set up, and let 'er rip. 250 Mb backup done in <1 minute and stored on the sites server in the WP-content folder.

Installed it on two websites where the databases are hosted on a completely separate server system and it had no problem doing backups. Haven't had to try the Restore function yet but if it's as good as the Backup function it will be a breeze.

Easier set-up by far than UpdraftPlus that I was happy with before.

Great Plugin
By Plugin Author,

Easy to use and dropbox integration is helpful.
