A backup plugin which doesn't have a RESTORE OPTION?! What is the use of that..it's like having a car that does not go in reverse! It is useless..I've spent 20 minutes learning how to use this plugin,configuring it and creating a backup, only to realize I can't restore my site from created backup?? You're lucky I didn't delete my site before realizing that!

I agree with RickC4: if there were zero stars you would get zero.

Wot no Restore?
By , for WP 4.1.1

I was given a backup of a site made with this plugin and disappointed to find no restore option.

I searched the web and found loads of posts of people with the same problem.

Anyone who has done any kind of IT work will tell you a backup is USELESS without a rapid means to restore.

I have used BackupBuddy which is OK, albeit that it struggles with very large sites and it is a cinch to restore, it also makes it easy to restore to a dev sub domain

So now I have to rip the backwpup backup file apart, restore the database, hope that the standard WP_ prefix was used or else inspect the DB to figure out then go edit all the parts that refer to the old site domain.

Probably half a days work in that alone and only then if it goes smoothly.

If there were zero stars you would get zero.

I would not recommend anyone uses this plugin

Dropbox does not function
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin does not link to Dropbox, as advertised. Requests for support have gone unanswered... it seems there is little interest in correcting the problem.
