Nice Plugin for backup
By , for WP 4.3.1

Worked well for me. Thanks!

Fantastico!

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.

no restore .... what's the point ?

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 ......??????

Exelent

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

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.

Very slooooow....

Sucks CPU time 24 hours/day. It'll pause for 5 minutes at a time, then restart, and back up a few files in 5 minutes, then pauses again. It still uses CPU time while paused.
I thought it'd be faster if I purchased the zip plugin; that took twice as long as the non-zip version, and still didn't finish.

I switched to a competing plugin, which finished in minutes vs. hours for this one.

Amazing plugin

One of the plugins I now install on every site :)

Great Plugin By A Knowledgeable And Responsive Programmer
By , for WP 4.1

After trying another "best free" backup app that not only didn't work but has yet to refund my money, I found myself peeved and hunting for an alternative solution.

With the free version of WPB2D installed, I ran into a minor hiccup and contacted the programmer. He responded quickly and walked me through a variety of known issues. I found the culprit and got things working, so I bought the compression and email add-ons.

Everything's working great and I'm pleased.

Thank you!
