Nice easy system....but
By , for WP 4.1.1

I like this back up plug in, nice and easy, but the auto back up feature to Dropbox and other locations is not free.

Quite simple and efficient. Does the job. Thank you! Only wish there was a restore option.

Easy to install, easy to set and reliable. Backups are easy to read too :-)

Admin panel not accessible after update

There is something wrong with the update ! Cannot access the admin panel after updating it. Please fix it. It is such an awesome plugin.

Update deletes backups
By , for WP 4.0

Great tool! Does almost exactly what I need.

BUT:
I just did an automatic update of the plugin. After that all my backup files on the server were gone!!
Luckily I downloaded them before.

One suggestion for future changes:
I'd like have the possibility to set the file format for the backup filename. In my case i.e. date first, then domain, no profile.
Kind of YYYY-MM-DD-HH-M-[DOMAIN]-[PROFILE]-database.zip.

Awesome Plugin

Awesome plugin! A restore function would be great too ;)

Great simple backup solution
By , for WP 4.1

No need for a ton of frills when all you want to do is back up quickly and safely. This plugin gets the job done. It eliminates having to login to my host and backing up manually.

Quick tutorial on how I use it here.

Update 1/7/15: I've backed off slightly on my 5* to 4* due to a recent issue I had. Some of the databases that were backed up were corrupted and also, if you run a deluxe hosting package, the plugin doesn't know the difference between the folders so it backs up EVERYTHING in the root folder. If there was a better way to control which folders don't get backed up, this would be a much better plugin and it would probably have cut back on the corrupted database file.

Backup done well!

You have to take care when installing and reinstalling the plugin, because it can backup the previously created backup folder. You will end up with a large backup file. As my client in this case.
