Nice Plugin for backup
By , for WP 4.3.1

Worked well for me. Thanks!

Semplice e immediato da utilizzare, backup programmabili. Una volta impostato (veramente facilissimo anche per i novelli di WordPress) fa il suo lavoro a dovere.

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

It would be desirable in future versions of the ability to restore from backup.

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.

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!

Works great

Best free backup around that i have found
By , for WP 4.0.1

I used to use some other free backup ones to try access dropbox. This is the only one that has consistently worked and just gets the job done.

Its a little slower then some of the other ones, but I deal with over 10 sites and so far the backups have been rock solid.

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.
