Perfect One
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin is doing perfectly what it is made for. Manual as well as auto backups of the whole web and database. Today I tested it "live" because my web went down for some reason. I opened last daily autobackup archive, deleted all the web content from ftp, uploaded backup copy here instead, imported database and voila - three simple steps and my web runs perfectly again.

I have noticed one "surprise". The only "thing" that was missing after recovery was this plugin itself. I had to install it again (and then all my previously created backup profiles appeared in plugin settings again. Strange but true. :)

Using dropbox with BackWpUp I am relaxed now.

simply does not work
By , for WP 4.3.1

I installed it, activated, got the Dropbox API codes, tried to run 2 jobs manually and it simply does not work.

First backup plugin I was able to get working
By , for WP 4.3.1

Probably because I tried 2-3 backup plugins before this, setting was very easy and very suprising for free version.
Tested with local saving, but everything works.
Very good plugin, thank you for it.

This plug-in is very excellent and useful tool, though first setup is hard a little.
