Dealing with bugs takes more time than manual restore
By , for WP 4.4.1

ugh... I wish I could say that "ohh it awesome, working prefect!" but not at all. Even I had a unlimited developer license, it is just a headache.. Since the beginning I was having issues with my backups, then contacted with "premium support" and the reply was so generic. "Try smaller split size for your backups!" . .I did. I decreased it to 100MB parts. I was able to "backup" but then restoration was pain.. Whenever I try to restore, I was getting an error that "The web server returned an error code (try again, or check your web server logs): Not Found" ... I have made sure that the back up files were exist. Then I started backing up one by one. Plugins, themes, uploads, others, then database.

Everything was fine until database restoration (WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON I DECIDED TO BUY UPDRAFT!!!!) As most of you may know, serialization is a big problem during the database restoration.. But everytime I tried to restore db, I was getting same error. Tried manually uploading file, then to restore it but didn't work... Since I have an unlimited developer version (paid $145), I installed it on my other 2 websites... ATTENTION: They are using different hosting provider. One of them is dedicated server the other 2 were shared hosting. Anyways, long story short, I already spent 2 days by hoping this plugin help to clone/migrate my sites on to dev and staging environment but apparently I spent way more time and have nothing but headache!!!

Does not do what it's supposed to do

Just installed this plugin on a brand new fresh install of WP with no other plugins or content added. Connected to my Dropbox no problem but could not complete a backup. It always failed no matter how many times I tried. Dropbox account has 1.2GM free space, which I assume is enough to backup a bare WP install. Deleted and forgotten.

Migrator is Not Free
By ,

Front page of site and WP description seemed to imply that the ability to migrate was free. You have to buy the Premium version or pay $30 for the extension alone to get it. Premium is $70 for up to 2 sites, $95 for 10 sites and 'unlimited' is $145.

They should make it clear that Site duplicator/migrator is an addon instead of listing it among other components without designation and using different phrasing for the utility towards the bottom when stating what's included in the premium version.

Thanks for wasting my time.

Beware - this DOES NOT make an image copy of your website

Installed the plugin just fine
did a backup to my DropBox just fine
looked at the backup and found 1/2 of my website was not included

this just backs up your MySQL DB and Plugins, Themes, and your uploads

but it DOES NOT backup WordPress and god knows what else

use at your own risk....

Doesn't work
By , for WP 4.3.1

I tried just about anything to get this to work, and did not succeed in making a backup with it, not even a simple file backup.

Silly stuff, by default the 5 stars are enabled, ofcourse i won't give it 5 stars if it doesn't do the job.

stopped restoring backups
By , for WP 4.2.2

it worked fine the first time I needed to restore a backup, but the next few times it just kept crashing my browser or refused to find my backups even though they were on the local storage and cloud storage!

Doesn't work!

I have installed this plugin but it didn't create any backup. My hosting provider is GoDaddy.

Lost all my posts & more
By , for WP 4.2.1

Simply didn't work & lost all my data
I suspect a conflict with the wordfence plugin

Not Entirely Free
By , for WP 4.1.1

If your server crashes and you want restore your site to a new server, you have to pay because Mr updraft considers that it is a migration.
it's free and it vault not better ...
