Either it's dodgy or has a big hole which allows someone else to hijack it. Either way...avoid!
I lost 2 weeks of work on a clients website because this plugin did not work. I guess I learned my lesson not to put my trust in plugins before trying them out. The plugin DOES successfully create a backup of the files within the directory but >DOES NOT< backup the wp Database at all.
-VERY DISSATISFIED USER
UPDATE: I tried to download and open one of the back-ups after reading some of the reviews about them being un-usable. In fact, could not get the zip file open.
Oh well.. off to search another plug-in.
--------------PREVIOUS REVIEW -------------------
This back-up plug in excels where others have failed (see my other reviews). Most importantly, it works at making back-ups I haven't had the chance to see but I hope it will also work to do a restore.
Why did I give this plug-in 4 instead of 5 stars?
I do wish it had some more basic settings like excluding some directories (I don't want to back-up my cache or plugins, for example) and it takes a bit of tech knowledge to schedule back-ups.
Since my web host does not offer cron jobs I had to hunt for an external provider - so that part was not particularly easy. So I do hope that in some future version they will offer an easier way to automate this script.
Solid. Dead easy. It works.
All along i thought this thing was working when I went to go use it because I needed it, the backups were no good. The support links were a non-existent. Luckily I was able to restore from Database backup. If I could give this a 0 I would. Downloader beware.
Activate plugin and you end up on a domian for sale with popup ads.. and need registration keys..
I activated the plug-in and when I went to go use it, it showed me that the domain was available for purchase.
