This plugin throws GIGANTIC error logs
By , for WP 4.5

This used to work just fine, but I am removing this plugin from all my websites as it throws gigantic error logs. 1065MB for instance which fills all available disk space.
I was hoping they would note this and make a change, but they have not. So sadly I say goodbye.

Great utility
By , for WP 4.4.2

WPB2D is a great utility: It's simple and it works. Having an automated backup really gives you a nice peace of mind. Would have rated it five stars, but it doesn't run under PHP 7.0. If you are running PHP 5.6 or older, you'll be fine.

Not what I hoped for
By , for WP 4.4.1

I've been using the plugin for a while hoping it would "work" at some point. I love the idea of having a backup in my dropbox. But, I've had issues with this since I installed it. Error logs are going crazy. I've yet to get a complete backup. I've given this more than a chance and I'm uninstalling.

I use it since years

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
By ,

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.

Nice Plugin for backup
By , for WP 4.3.1

Worked well for me. Thanks!

Fantastico!
By , for WP 4.3.1

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
