Disappointed with the scheduler
By , for WP 4.4.2

It is all good, except the shcedule section, I got the Pro version because I wanted an schedule, but it is very poor, with few config options. You cannot select the day of the backup in the "weekly" backup. You cannot have more than one schedule task (for example a partial backup daily and a full backup weekly).
If you are looking for a good scheduler backup, this is not a good option.
I hope the team keep it mind and improve the scheduler.

Looks, functions good - should have command line extract
By , for WP 4.4.2

A friend of mine needed help with their wp site, their "developer" added some unauthorized code to their templates and then that person mysteriously went out of contact.

Since there was no access to shell or cpanel, etc I needed a way to download all their files to my computer to identify all changes made.
So, I bought the Silver version of BackupGuard for WordPress.

Unfortunately the sgbp file is a "proprietary" format. but luckily it is trivial to extract the archive without installing WordPress on a server, yay.

ie,
# ./extract.php sg_backup_20160226054336.sgbp

It would be nice if the BackupGuard people provided this script, that's why I'm giving it only three stars.

Other than that, the program looks nice and appears to operate properly for my need.

final note, The software requires zlib AND ALSO libcurl. Doesn't really need wp to extract a sgbp file, just a dummy implementation of $wpdb, and three dummy functions.
