    I'm a fan of BackupBuddy, thought this one might be handy for anyone thinking about getting it.

    I know this is old - but wanted to add my comment.

    Love the concept - but was disappointed in the results.
    The interface isn't as intuitive as I hoped.
    Full backups are too large to be emailed, and they aren't synchronising to DropBox - but datafiles only will.

    ****just make note that BB is a yearly cost and not a 1 off purchase.

    BUT i am IN LOVE with backup buddy ! , it has helped me grow my business so FAST you couldn't believe, sure sometimes it frustrates me but i give it 9.9/10

    NOW, if they could just get the WPMU backup working the same i'd be at 9.99999/10

    dropbox: who cares? why do you need to email it?.... i am interested in knowing why, you must be using it different to me so that interests me.

    i use BB for backups but also for duplication via download then FTP upload.

    It's an absolutely essential tool for me now too.

    Migrating sites is so much easier because of BB.

    I understand it is a subscription service - I am less than six months in.

    I couldn't rate any service that causes frustration at 9.99999/10. My personal rating would be closer to
    6 or 7.

    dropbox: I care. A backup retained in the SAME location is no backup at all. Since a full backup is too large to email - I choose DropBox.
    DropBox has never worked for full site backup - but it should.

    I don't plan to renew it.

    I can understand that it would be fantastic for migrating sites
