free backup with paid restore option

By aryanrajseo on April 23, 2023

What is the point of keeping the backup if i can't restore them when needed?

If i need to restore manually then i can also backup manually.

Not checking server before activating

By gerisoft on April 5, 2023

Unfortunately, the plugin activating routine not checking the server possibilities before activating, and try to work on unsupported PHP version, kills the site. Should be correct this routine

No easy restore option

By chrisplaneta on March 28, 2023

The fact, that there is no easy restore option should be clearly stated on the plugin's description page. The fact that it is only available only in the Pro version is, in my view, an ugly tactic to force non technical users to purchase it they need to restore something.

No restore with free version - not even from file

this is pathethic

very limited free version

By amiens80 on October 17, 2022

i only tried the free version and the backup task (not the restore task) on wp6. there is not parameter to store the backuped file outside the wordpress root path, all is store in /upload. So if you lose your wordpress folder, then you lose your backup too! then if you have a override task which perform a daily backup (like another linux app), then your wordpress archive get bigger and bigger each time because there is a 'inside-backup' stored each time. that why you need to store the backup archive outside the wordress root path!

Cumbersome, cryptic error messages with S3

By Sumukha on July 3, 2022

This used to be my go-to backup plugin until a few years back. Now the setup for S3 is just annoying and works sometimes, sometimes not. Going back to Updraft....

my entire website in the trash

By octubree (comercialpiria) on June 15, 2022

my experience means nothing, the score of this plugin is very good, but despite that, I want to leave my experience. I used it twice on different days, the first time all good, the second time a few moments ago was a resounding disaster, when I go to the url to retrieve the web page, I get the message, "restore failed, I posted this result you see on the screen on the forum. In less than two minutes my entire website was gone. I will say no more.`

Very convenient and easy-to-configure plug-ins!

By alexeytrusovru on April 17, 2022

Thanks to the developers for a very handy plugin! I've been using it for many years and it has never let me down! Thank you!
