Installation and configuration are simple enough.
The first backup can take a little while, since the plugin does a file-by-file backup. but subsequent backups are only the database (uncompressed SQL) and changed / added files.
But once it's set up, it gets to work. There are premium plugins if you need additional functionality (like zipping files), but the out-of-the-box "free" version works great. Thanks for a great plugin.
This is one of those plugins that is a must-install on every site I work on. It's the easiest way to backup your entire site to somewhere off the server without having to pay for a license. Saves me a lot of work scheduling manual cron jobs or the old way of emailing backups.
This plugin doesn't compress the backup. If you want your backup to be zipped, you must buy a premium add-on. Without the compression, backup is extremely slow... I have waited more than one hour to complete.
Very good plugin!
This plugin is a must-have if you want to backup your website to a Dropbox account. Before using this plugin, I backup my sites manually weekly and that takes a lot of time.
Now, I can relax and have the backed up version of my site in my local computer since I have my PC and Dropbox account synced.
Awesome plugin, no more worrying about backups and hosting issues.
The plugin installs and configures nicely.
Exclusion selection was good.
Setup with dropbox was clean and neat.
When you run immmediately it from the monitor pages,
it says backup started and then gives no feedback at all.
Returning to the page it appears that
nothing has been/ is running.
I have a backup set to run shortly.
I'm also wondering if I can restore elsewhere,
but this is not covered.
I like the fact that I can easily exclude cache and other folders that don't need to be backed up. Also, it doesn't require MySQLi extension in PHP to work.
Looks easy enough that I can get my clients to do their own backups.
Now it just needs to add an "ad-hoc" Backup button for the DashBoard instead of forcing scheduled backups and it would be rather perfect.
(Another good feature would be to create a LOCAL backup onto a folder on the web server itself, just in case anything goes wrong with a version update of WP or plug-ins. No need to copy it all over the net into DropBox. Ideally tie it to the "Update" feature so that backups are taken automatically)
The communication problems with support gone a month ago, and now I must to say this plugin is only one which is really works, not overwhelmed with settings and uploads my 1.5 GB site as fast as possible. I not joking, 1.5 GB with all materials (I have 72 GB Dropbox space). The only one thing now looks problematic, site ls less responsive while ZIP-ped backup upload process not finished. If you not use ZIP, the site will not show any slow-downs. And, if someone decided to purchase, please not forget the software registered to domain name. In case you develop site locally and not in fully-isolated sandbox with real domain names and fake DNS to this sandbox, software will be registered to your site-dev.company-dev.com or something address and refused to work after moving to real domain.
Very simple plugin but useful !!
