This was exactly what I needed, I needed a multi location backup system and this did the job perfectly. Very simple to use.

A must have plugin for every wordpress site

I'm using Backwpup to schedule daily backups to a Dropbox account and it just works. Thanks to this wonderful plugin, I am able to keep the last 60 days of my site.

You may need to make a few tweaks to optimise it. Such as:

Maximum script execution time = 29 seconds (otherwise your host may cancel the running script during the backup process)

Archive Format = Tar BZip2 (%30 better compression and smaller backup file size)

Perfect One

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.

First backup plugin I was able to get working

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.
