Excellent back-up tool. Well worth it! Thanks for your hard work on this. Good to see you’re charging a fair amount too… always helps to support future development!

Now I have to tell my clients they have to pay $40 to upgrade ! bit naughty Eric, nobody denies the hard work you put into this but I believe you really should have either charged a nominal amount in the first place or waited till v2.0

You’re a STAR, Eric! :-) This neat thing saved my day (and my bottom) a couple of times now. It works smoothly, quickly and has everything I need.

Another great EE contribution from Eric Lamb. If you need some piece of mind for your database and files, this add-on is perfect for a basic backup solution. If you need remote backups or multiple server paths, get the Pro version. Great add-on and FREE.
