Works very well

I have been using UpdraftPlus for about 3 months and I'm very pleased with how it works


The best back-up solution for WP, worth the premium subscription, peace of mind
By , for WP 4.0

I had been using Updraft for a while as a backup plugin while using Duplicator as a migration plugin (and also back-up plugin at times). After having a scare with our back-ups I decided to go ahead and purchase the premium subscription and it was absolutely worth the price.

The integration with Dropbox, Amazon, etc itself is worth the price. Instead of using up disk space on my server I have set up the plugin to automatically update once a week or day (depending on the site's needs) and upload the back-up files to my Dropbox account, which can handle a larger storage size than my hosting server.

All of my sites are now being backed up, with multiple back-ups being saved, and I am being notified whenever there happens to be an error. The plugin can also back up every time I update my plugins which makes it much easier to roll things back if one of the plugins is causing a problem.

The icing on the cake is the migration feature. In my opinion it is better tan the duplicator plugin specifically because its simpler and is better at replacing all instances of the old URL with the new URL.

I have noticed one issue: the use of Javascript has caused a problem with our Techgostore theme on one of the sites (but I think it may be a problem with the theme) but that's the only problem I've had with the plugin. Would highly recommend!

Lots of choices and good instructions

This has been doing my backup job over a year. Followed the instructions and it's been reliable ever since. Highly recommended.

It Just works - Wish I could give it Six Stars
By , for WP 4.0

I run Three WordPress Sites, A personal one and two for a Charity that I volunteer for. I use Updraft on all of them, My Personal one I backup to Dropbox, the Chrity sites i backup to our own FTP server.

In all cases It Just worked, it E-A-S-Y to install and configure, all the features I could possibly want and more are there.

What else can I say, it's brilliant.

Easy for a 1st timer, saves headaches and heartbreaks

Easy to use and gives me a good description of what the problem is if there is one. The automatic function is great--no remembering to backup, just set it and wait for the reports.

This is the simplest tool I may have ever used :)

While I don't yet know if the restore feature works as I've only just backed up my site... I'll give it 5 stars in good faith and will update my review should I find I need to in the future. Thanks!

Easy to use, essential for WP maintenance
By , for WP 4.0

All WP accounts should have a backup solution. This plugin works really well and allows us to backup to either our cloud service or the client's cloud service on schedule. If the cloud service is not available, it continues the backup schedule but backs up to the hosting server. Also, David is super responsive with assistance.

Easy to use and does what it says
By , for WP 4.0

Very easy plugin to use which does as it says. Saves a lot of time when wanting to go back to a previous version of site before updating it or when experimenting "what if" scenarios that don't quite work out as you expected. :)

That's the way iI like it

No way to make it easier. Thanks a lot.
Maybe the UI / UX could be better...
