User Testimonials

Your WPB2D plugin just saved my site/life after I killed my functions.php and I could not even log into wordpress. So thank you for making a plugin that works flawlessly.

Joe Zahm - Part Timer -

I installed a couple of weeks ago, and the plugin is working beautifully. Just wanted to say thanks and it's great to search the web for a solution and find it was developed locally. Also nice to have my WordPress site about cloud data storage backing up to the cloud so effortlessly :)

Toby Owen - Cloudy Guy -

I used so many of the products listed, even with high ratings, and they were all crap (to me). This product is PERFECT! It was quick, easy - almost mindless to operate. If this task can be done as easily as Michael De Wildt has made it here...

CK Hicks - Media Wizard -

I just wanted to say thank you for a great little plug-in. I've spent hours trying to find one that did both file and db back-ups and was tested on 3.3, and I had about given up. This plugin worked instantly and simply.
