Great add-on and incredible support.  We had an issue with how large our backup was, and they actually went out of their way to rewrite some of the code, which will be included in the next release.

Peace of mind for sure. But also elegantly designed and impeccably supported by Tom Jaeger. Very pleased.

Can you put a price on piece-of-mind?

Safe Harbor just works. And there’s no reason not to use it on every site with the developer license. It’s part of our default install.

Backups files & db - again, files & db. Clients will love not thinking about it. You’ll love optional offsite service, S3 integration, searchable backups & great support.

Finally with Safe Harbor I have a solid peace of mind about my EE site. EngineHosting has daily backups but this gives me direct control for restores, etc. Just set it and forget it! Highly recommended!
