Responded to me plea for help when I messed up my restore. I know what they did to restore was right on, but I also know it was time consuming. They came thru exactly as promised. Thanks Loads! Jim

First, I tested whether backup to google drive works. Then I tested restore. Must say, it just works! Experienced an issue on another site, with very large (200mb+) files left over from another backup plugin. Sent log files to support and received resolving replies within 24 hours. Very impressive. I'm not a huge fan of the aesthetics of the plugin, is a bit "busy" and could benefit from a simplification, but the same is the case for many other popular backup plugins, and at the end of the day, backups are *mostly* "set and forget". As with ALL backup solutions, you REALLY should test out if they work as expected, so that you know you can rely on it, the day you need it. So far WPvivid seems to offer the most complete feature set available for a free plugin - give it a spin.

This must be about the worse backup system if you have a VPS. Once I've clicked on start backup my entire cpanel VPS went down and had to restart it several times to be able to regain access. Restarting Apache, restarting Mysql, nothing worked. Deleting the plugin didn't worked either. Never happened this on another backup system.
