Incomplete posts and pages
By , for WP 4.2.2

I wrote on their forum to point out that using their latest release on a freshly update WordPress, I ended up with incomplete post and page content, just a few lines at the beginning of each and no more. Thankfully I was cloning, not backing up and restoring, otherwise I would have lost most of my content, so beware before relying on this plugin for backup!
I waited a week for a reply from developers but nothing yet, so it has to be a 1 star I'm afraid...

Just not working
By , for WP 4.2.2

It will not backup my site. When it does finish then the file is empty!! So I cant restore it from my other website. Dammit!

Restore not working
By , for WP 4.2.2

On restore by url option, we get a message Internal Server Error, and the best part is there is no solution for that, uninstalling the plugin

Great concept. Didn't work for me.
By , for WP 4.2.2

After selecting Create Backup, my browser went into Waiting For mode for several minutes and then navigated to my blog page and returned a page not found message:

Worse than useless
By , for WP 4.2

Not only did it delete all my content, it also leaves a large hidden zip file which doesn't get deleted when the plugin is deleted.

Does not work
By , for WP 4.1.1

I tried it three times and all I got was a white screen that said:

405 Not Allowed

Could not find any help on their website.

do not install this plugin, it broke my site
By , for WP 4.0.1

I installed it and when I tried to make a backup, it just hanged. I try refreshing the page and the site was all unresponsive. Had to delete the plugin folder via FTP in order to have my site back.

I would recommend removing this plugin from the WordPress plugin list.


WP-Clone no longer working
By , for WP 4.1

Having used wp-clone for a few years, it has stopped working on most sites and is no longer being supported in the forum - questions going unanswered etc etc

By , for WP 4.1.1

I can't believe fatal error on activation is something that we could still have in 2015 !!!
