Sorry, have to give bad review
By , for WP 4.4.2

I use two backup plugins for my site: BackUpForWordPress and this one. The first one creates backups in a subfolder of my site and provides an easy link to download the zip file.

I had been merrily going along assuming this plugin was regularly backing up my site to DropBox. Not so. I just checked and there were no complete backups in DrobBox. I, as other users have reported, was getting incessant notifications that image files were being updated. I was puzzled because these were files that normally don't change, so I can only conclude that this plugin was continuously attempting to backup my site but only managed to change a few files with each attempt.

I am giving the harsh 1 star because of all things, a backup solution must be bullet proof to be of any use. I am glad i'm also using another plugin; users who rely on this one might be in for a nasty surprise if they need to restore.

huge error_log files created

I've used this plugin on multiple sites for over a year, but now it's creating larger error files. Hope an update someday resolves this. It's been brought up in forums, with no update yet. I'm switching.

Semplice e immediato da utilizzare, backup programmabili. Una volta impostato (veramente facilissimo anche per i novelli di WordPress) fa il suo lavoro a dovere.

Works but ridiculously slow
By , for WP 4.3.1

Set my backup to go - 24 hours later it's still backing up files. Seems to get bored after about 5 minutes every hour then wakes itself up again on the next hour. No idea when it will finish.

Crazy slow.

Excelente Pluging - Confiable y Fácil de Restaurar
By , for WP 4.3.1

He instalado este pluging en mi sitio web, durante varios meses y por haber tenido que cambiar de emergencia el servicio de Hosting, utilice el respaldo guardado en Dropbox para reinstalar todo el sitio a el nuevo Hosting, los pasos son muy fácil y funciono perfectamente.

Pasos para Restaurar con WordPress Backup to Dropbox Restore

1) Instale el WordPress en el nuevo Hosting.

2) Recupere de Dropobox, las carpeta wp-content y los archivos .htaccess, wp-config.php y robots.txt

3) Copie la capeta y archivos indicados en el punto 2, en el nuevo Hosting, con su acceso FTP.

4) Cree una BD y el usuario a la BD con los permisos necesarios.

5) Utilice el archivo de respaldo de la BD ubicado en wp-content-> backups->nombre_de_la_bd-backup.sql y lo subi al phpMyAdmin.

6) Antes de subir el archivo nombre_de_la_bd-backup.sql al phpMyAdmin, edite el nombre de la BD y coloque el nuevo nombre.

7) En el phpMyAdmin busque la opción de ejecutar archivos .sql, pero tambien puede copiarlo en la ventana de ejecución de SQL y lo ejecuta.

8) Copie el archivo de wp-config.php en la carpeta del wordpress, donde esta el .htaccess, pero previamente abra el archivo y modifique el nombre de la BD en el parámetro define('DB_NAME', 'su-nueva-BD') y el usuario de BD en el parámetro define('DB_USER', 'su-nuevo-usuario-de-BD'), con el creado en el punto 4.

9) Como recomendación, solo respalde, la carpeta wp-content y los archivos .htaccess, wp-config.php y robots.txt

How do I restore my website?
Restoring can be a complicated process because every host is different. You can try and follow the steps in this blog post, if that does not work I would consult your web developer for help.

what kind of answer is that ......??????

It would be desirable in future versions of the ability to restore from backup.

Not working when installed on second website
By , for WP 4.1.1

Very good plugin. Does what it says. It backups my WordPress and dbfiles when installed on my first website, however, it does not work on the second website. I don't know if it's a server issue or on the plugin itself.

Very helpful
By , for WP 4.2.2

Works fine, thanks!
Just one warning: if you change many files on your site, it takes plenty of server resources to do the backup, to the point that the server provider may ask to upgrade.
I ended up with the following protocol:
I use Dropbox syncing application on my home comp.
I let the plugin handle minor updates to the site (a few files + any DB changes).
In case I do a major change on my live site (a major upgrade to WP or change in a large plugin), I run rsync to synchronize the Dropbox directory on my home comp with my site. The Dropbox application synchronizes then it with Dropbox; after that the plugin just backs up the database.
