Does exactly what you'd expect
By , for WP 4.5.3

It just backs up my site. Nothing more. Nothing less. Super easy. No headaches

Bought the premium plugins and these are almost a must but still it's only $15 for a site so totally worth it.

Love your work Michael

Gigantic 'Gotcha' - Useless when you need it.
By , for WP 4.5.3

Useless because the developer has never released a working version of the restore plugin.

So, after a year of false security, watching my site being backed up each week, when the crap hit the whilrling blades and I really need it, there's no possibility of a Restore.

Wish I'd read the other poor reviews before relying on it.

Took everything down
By , for WP 4.5.2

I installed this plugin and started the process of Backing up. It started running and after 15 minutes timed out with an error.

I deactivated and deleted the plugin but it kept trying to run in the background and took my site down by overloading the Memory and then created 2.3GB of files in its directory.

Worst wordpress plugin I have ever tried to use. Stay away.

Only done 3 backups and stop work
By , for WP 4.5.1

After 3 backups the plugin doesnt do any more.
I adjust the days and time several times,but nothing.
the plugin is linked corrextly with my DP account.
This plug in no works properly.

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
By , for WP 4.4.2

It's awesome.

thx - great job !!!

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.
