Still works well
By , for WP 3.9.1

I'm looking for a newer, supported WP plugin that supports scheduling & ftp, but I've been using Snapshot Backup now for several years & it still works ok. It can easily ZIP a whole WP install & DB making a file larger than 1 gb without problems. (DreamHost.com).

Low traffic wp sites can use a Cron job to keep the schedule working as expected. See the Snapshot Backup docs for details, but basically you just need to schedule curl to hit doing_wp_cron daily.

I love that it can delete old backups keeping a reasonable number and that it can backup to any FTP server. This is not automated for restores, but you can restore it yourself. Anyway, it still works the same as it ever did with the current version of WP 3.9.1 as of July 2014. My desktop is Mac 10.8.5 & FireFox 30.0, everything looks normal. Still using SnapShot Backup until something actually better comes along.

I've tried a few now and keep coming back to this one, compact easy to setup, IE doesn't like some of the screens but it keeps working, close and open again and all is still OK :)
