Very slooooow....
By , for WP 4.2.1

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.

Too slow in my case
By , for WP 4.1

DAYS and DAYS to backup roughly 90+MB on Siteground I uninstalled it. Too bad looked promising, and easy to configure.

Nothing short of daylight robbery
By , for WP 4.0

This has been probably the worst experience ever with a developer. The plugin never worked even when I paid to upgrade. I emailed the developer and I was asked for an admin account. I provided one and waited for literally MONTHS sending several emails leaving large time gaps between them. The developer responded a couple of times at the beginning but never again afterwards. I even tracked him on social profiles and sent messages, no response. I had to delete the admin account and plugin in the end. My money taken for nothing, this has taken over 3 months of patience. If this is not fraud then I don't know what is.

Doesn't compress the backup
By , for WP 4.0

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.

Too "beta" to have a paid version
By , for WP 3.8.1

No UTF-8 filenames support - useless for me, and quite lame, in fact. On first run backed up less than a half of all files. Unreliable, uninstalled.

WPB2D not working
By , for WP 3.6.1

I bought the premium bundle but nothing changes, I got no extra options in my menu. So really not satisfied at all of my purchase...

Worthless

No backup now option, and clearly there isn't one. Suspect it's a paywall feature. Pfft, gfto, stfu, kthxbai.

Does not work
By ,

Backup never runs. Even if you tell it to run manually it just sits there for hours, doing nothing as far as could be determined looking at a mix of running processes and data on DropBox account.

Snail
By , for WP 3.6

W ciągu 45 min. pobrało 20 MB danych. UpdraftPlus w ciągu godziny pobiera 240. W obu przypadkach pliki lądują na Dropboxie. Nie polecam. Strata czasu. Tylko kompa zamula.

Расширенные возможности не работают
By ,

Плагин вроде бы хорошо, но купленный пакет расширенных возможностей так и не заработал, а прошло уже более 2-х месяцев общения с разработчиками. Печально что разработчики сдались и предлагают вернуть потраченные деньги
