Great Plugin, Must have

Works well in backing up and restoring WordPress site. Does all the work from back up and sync files in drop box. Works so smoothly and helps me to live a tension free life !

Single-handedly the best wordpress backup Plugin out there
By , for WP 4.0

I have tried most of the 'well-rated' one's and no one comes close to the seamlessness and consistency Updraftplus offers. The vanilla version without add-ons is not handicapped at all. quickly backs-up to most cloud services that matter.

If only I can ask for more, it will be 'Box' integration.

Thanks for making this life-saver.

LOVE this plugin!
By , for WP 4.0

My business builds WordPress sites for clients, among other things, and the BEST plugin I have found for backup is UpDraftPlus. I install it for everyone these days.

I like that you can control when and what you backup, but I just set it up to work with AmazonS3 and don't have to think about it for me or my clients. I haven't used the restore option so far, but I'm guessing that it will be pretty seamless, too. Love it!

back up function worked like a charm
By , for WP 4.0

I just upgraded to the latest version of NextGen gallery and all of my images/galleries became DOA (400 galleries/1500 images). Used the updraftplus backup function to restore plugins to what they were before the upgrade - and SUCCESS - back to normal! Can't thank you enough - will be purchasing the clone plugin when it comes time to move the website to another host. Thanks again....

Easy to use

Thank you for this great plug in! It's easy to use and I besides my hosting server, I have another backup option for my website. The email option is nice and also Drop Box.

backups saved me bigtime from the backdoor issue with MailPoet newsletter plugin
By , for WP 4.0

One of my sites got hit from the backdoor intrusion from the MailPoet newsletter plugin in July-August. The backups saved my okole.

Both the plugin and the attitude need some work.

Sorry, it doesn't work for me. I was backing up to Google Drive and I requested UDP delete backups that were 20 days old or older. Unfortunately, it did not delete the old backups. So in order for me to use it, I had to go into Google Drive every week or so and delete my old backups. I decided to use something more automated.

Also, I don't like the way this Author tenaciously tries to get negative reviews removed. That may be why he has so many 5-star ratings. More importantly, it tells me this Author has no respect for his customers' opinions. Unfortunately, I believe the author's attitude is also part of the customer experience--and I don't like it.

Easy to configure. Saved me this morning when a section of my weblog disappeared.

Works seamlessly

I have a regular backup scheduled and receive the emails from it to assure me it's running. It's as easy to use as if I designed it myself! ;-)
