That is really terrable
By , for WP 4.5.1

This plugin is one of the most awful plugins I've ever seen. Different failures occur very often and also errors appear. I am disappointed!

Stay Away - Back Up File Format is Proprietary Format
By , for WP 4.5.3

Terrible. Why use your own format? Another controlling company.

Backup for WordPress
By ,

The plugin Backup isn't suitable for the backup copy of WordPress. Or rather it doesn't work as it should. Too bad, I don't advise you.

Did not work.
By , for WP 4.5.2

Bought the gold package. On two sites, I cannot activate the plugin. On another the schedule function - the reason I threw money after this - does not work. No help from support whatsoever.

Edit:
Support eventually woke up and I was issued a refund.

Fail restore
By , for WP 4.2.8

Restore is not possible!
I'm loosing much hours by trying to restore my site, but i see only repairing and nothing else. Last 2 hours trying to restore my database and nothing was happen.

Strongly not recommend this plugin!

Recover fails!
By , for WP 4.5.2

I had done a few saves, but wanted to test the recovery option and got an error that the file is too big!! That's absurd. If the file it too big for a recovery, the back-up should generate a warning. I can't recommend it.
