Appears to work just fine
By , for WP 4.2.4

I say "appears" simply because I never had to do a restore so far — so: as far as the backup process goes, this plugin has worked for me flawlessly ever since I installed it. Little question mark: after upgrading to the latest version of the plugin (1.11.3) I mysteriously found the plugin deactivated (by itself? by the upgrade process?) — I reactivated (still the free version), and everything seems to be back to normal.

Almost Perfect

Missing the ability to download the created backup in One file (zip)

Woks fine for me

No real problems backing up to Dropbox from several sites over the last couple of years.
Thanks guys

So far, so good
By , for WP 4.1

I was quite excited to find this plugin; last time I looked, BackupBuddy was the only choice. This works just as well for me, and is free. If you have a little bit of tech knowledge (e.g., how to use the Google Drive API, which is a lot easier than it sounds) it's easy to set up following the prompts; a complete guide (not reviewed) is available for newbies.

I only awarded 4 stars since I'm just starting. I'll report back when I've had more time with it, esp. on my devblog where I can test the backup and restore more fully. But I'm happy so far, and expect this will be a five-star review at that point.

Really fantastic

virtually always - only some migration problems with virtual servers

utilissimo, funziona e tra quelli free è tra i migliori
By , for WP 4.1.1

fa esattamente quello che promette e non constringe ad acquistare la versione premium per la mancanza delle opzioni più utili come spesso accade con gli altri plugin di backup. Fa i backup programmati, ha un buon strumento di debug se qualcosa non funziona. E' possibile fare i backup direttamente nei servizi cloud anche se per alcuni è richiesta l'installazione di script o moduli forniti.

Did not work at first, but I am using ti on another site and it seems fine

UpdraftPlus is the best, most reliable back-up tool I've used
By , for WP 4.0

One of my major sites, which uses extensive podcasting and blogging worldwide, is highly dependent on reliable backup tools.

I've tried the usual WordPress backup plugins, but I've yet to find one as consistently reliable as UpdraftPlus. With very little effort, the program backs up chunks of data to my Dropbox, which syncs back to my computer's hard disk, then to a backup drive. So I have three copies both the MySql database and WordPress files for the last two days at any time.

Highly recommended.

Best I've used so far

Have not had complete success exporting to amazon s3, but otherwise is a nice design, reliable system
