I had a mayor crash on my pc and lost all my images. This plugin allowed me to downnload every single images from my media library and I´ve recovered all!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, plugin worked like a charm!

Simple, fast, does not work with special characters

Very basic, creates an archive and downloads it quickly.
However it destroyed all my german umlauts in the filenames and is thus unusable.

When I attempted to use the plugin I got this message:

Media Library contains 13 files in excess of 4.59 MiB

Creating compressed file ...failed.

Beats downloading the Media Library via FTP as it downloads the original image file - not the resized ones.

Great, one question though:
Is this plugin only backing up the images that are used in posts? As when i zipped it, it seemed to only get the full size images that are used by WP posts, withouth the thumbnails and the other images... correct?

When I install it in my theme it gives a lots of error

I would like to thank you a lot for this plugin. I had a weird problem where I had to move a client's website to a new server and while all the images were loading on the previous server and I could find them in the media library, they would not show up in the uploads folder for some reason.

With this plugin, I have been able to download all the 'hidden' pictures and upload them on my new server.
